My plein aire set up on Easter morning 2015.

On Easter Sunday 2015, it was evident (early on) there would be no sunrise to observe, let alone, paint in Boerne, Texas. It was a cloudy and misty morning. Determined to join my art buddies’ cross-country, Easter sunrise, paint-out tradition, a quote by C.S. Lewis came to mind that inspired me to capture the atmospheric perspective I could observe. What a beautiful morning it ended up being!

I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only
because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.

—C.S. Lewis
