love will light the day

acrylic on canvas

summer sunlight breaking through the clouds over Bar Hill and Castle Hill on the southern ridge of the Kelvin Valley. As viewed from Croy Hill looking westwards down the line of the old Antonine Wall.

a feeling of spirit being poured over the land as the cavernous clouds of winter roll away.

    The layers of the sky and cloud formations are breathtaking……superb composition and brush work my friend. I sure hope God sends His love down on me like that….hugs
