The inspiration for this piece is found in the tiny, island churches located on Johns Island, South Carolina. Deane passes these simple country churches on a weekly basis and is inspired by their charm, simplicity and spirit. Although rustic in apprearance, the energy and holiness radiating from these humble structures is abundant and overflowing.
On Sunday mornings, the church parking lots are packed full of cars. The music can be heard flowing from within and the joy resonating through song.
Deane has had the honor and pleasure to attend services at several of the island churches. She hopes to capture the elation, the exuberance and the energy she experienced in her depiction of these heavenly structures.
