To most, this building is just another old building. But, to many of the locals, Smyrna Baptist Church, located in Stevenson, Alabama, holds special memories. This old building once was a schoolhouse long before it was a church building. A resident of Stevenson, Willie B. Rutherford, went to school here as a child, and was an active member of the church during her later years, until her passing. The history of this building and folks like Willie B. (As she was known.) went through my mind while painting this pastel landscape in 1985. With nearly every stroke of the pastel stick, my memory sketched the little church: the smells of the old building, laughter of children, conversations with deep country accents, and watching Mr. Dan Golf, due to age, carefully making his way up the church steps. These reflections occupied my mind during this painting process like retro reruns of the Andy Griffith Show. I dedicate this work to my friends in ministry and the parishioners of this heartfelt church.
