September Ranch, Looking East

September Ranch is just east of us on Carmel Valley Road. It's a beautiful place and I often stop there to photograph scenes I'd like to paint. This morning the sun was casting long shadows and the fog was still rising from the river when I took the photo I used for this painting.

More importantly, tomorrow is Easter, my favorite holiday. To think that God could love me enough to suffer the penalty for my sins. No painting or photograph or poem could ever approach the beauty of that thought.

When I lived in Greece I loved the fact that on Easter, everyone greeted each other by saying Christos Anesti - Christ is risen.

He is risen indeed. Happy Easter.
