The many churches of Carl Barks

Wednesday = Barksday!

While all of you know Carl Barks oil paintings with the Disney Ducks, here's something you might be unaware of: He painted churches!
Thre are lots of paintings by Barks from the 60's of the Christian Science Church in Hemet. Here are three. Notice the number of the first: #666. :)

Now, I don't think he painted several hundred of these.
#566, 666, and 766 are more likely the fifth, sixth and seventh painting of the church he did in 1966. Using a different numbering system to separate these from the rest of his paintings.
