Hope everybody is enjoying a great  Sky Watch Friday !

Now, I certainly am no expert on the precise definition of the word "etheric", but I found this most beautiful painting in the Catholic church in Tomales, California.

This is indeed an etheric painting - etheric in this case meaning 'ethereal'!

Unique contribution to Sky Watch!

Honnestly I prefer a natural sky to an "etheric" one, lol !

An interesting twist on a Sky Watch post. An abstract and symbolic version of sky. She looks like she is holding it all up.

Unusual colours for an image of this sort. Very different SW, Don.
Like the foggy summit very much.

It is a beautiful piece of art.

I was trying to come up with something clever to say about this painting but I can't because my eyes are drawn to the teaser sky picture up on top and I can't stop looking at it ... WOW!!

Dear Donald,

Thank you, thank you for this beautiful photo! It’s a very creative and brilliant idea to participate to SWF with such a meaningful and unique skywatch picture! Although I don’t believe in religions and don’t practice any religion, I respect very much the impact of christianity on the development of the art of painting and I therefore sincerely enjoy spending time in churches and museums to examine this kind of religious paintings.

Yes, I disappeared from the blogosphere for a while. I made a trip to Paris in August, it was fine in general but I was emotionally depressed and deleted my blogs in a moment of sadness. But I like to take photos and share them, so last week I opened a new blog, the one you visited.

I’m very happy to write to you again,

Wish you a wonderful week-end,

Best regards,

Your clouds sitting on the hills are even more magical than the Renessance painting. I love the way the trees pop their heads above them like Meercats looking around.
