"The Deep Sky" 36x36, Oil on Clayboard

"The Deep Sky" 36x36, Oil on Clayboard

How to even put this into words? There is the sky we see all day and then at night there is the deeper sky. I didn't realize how much we were missing until I went to Big Bend National Park and saw for myself the deeper beauty that is in the black night. The more I gazed at it the more colors came out. Even the stars themselves had colors. Who knew there were such stars? It takes getting away from the city domes of artificial light. It's right there over us waiting to speak.

Psalm 19:1-2
"The heavens declare the glory of God, the skies proclaim the work of His hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge."


  1. Dawn, it took my breath away! Yes, it's the Heavens and to be so close to them. This brought tears to my eyes and put my heart in awe. Thank you for sharing this!!!
