art: night sky

This is a small watercolor I did this week and is available in my online art gallery (to the right!). Many of my paintings have this perspective of looking up. Some have suggested it represents the spiritual component of my life. I also find incredible inspiration from the night sky. When the stars are shining, I often have a strong sense of God’s presence. Like last night, it helps me clear my mind and center down. Smoking my pipe sometimes helps too. All things will be well. Hope you like it. Have a great day, and see you tomorrow.

    I am going to take my kids outside the city limits to see a night sky full of stars, promised to do it right after I get through this paper crunch. There is nothing like a crisp night under a sky full of stars to give you a proper perspective on life.

    which is why i sometimes remind myself that even though there may be advantages to living in a city (and there are things i miss about the city)… there’s nothing that can match the beauty of a dark sky embedded with stars

    My wife and I have just moved out to the “country” and as NP said there are things about the city we miss, but not being able to see the night sky isn’t one of them. Many nights out here we have sat on our deck with the lights out and just looked up. When we do that everything we are going though in our lives just seem really, really small. Love the painting btw.

    While I don’t quite live in the country, there is nothing I miss about the city. Great painting, David.
