White Dove

This mortuary chapel is part of the San Xavier del Bac Mission. Located about 9 miles south of Tucson on the Tohono O'odham San Javier Indian Reservation, the "White Dove of the Desert" was completed in 1797 and is the oldest intact European structure in Arizona.  I found the chapel so lovely that I wanted to paint it. If you are ever in southern Arizona, the mission is a must see!
