This is the San Jose Mission painted in midday lighting. I couldn't make up my mind so I painted the mission twice one with mid day lighting and the first with afternoon lighting. I also love the arches and was able to get them in this time around.
When I began to think of a title I was drawn to "Embraced by the Light" but it seemed too familiar for some reason. Then I remembered a book I read almost twenty years ago called "Embraced by the Light". The book recounted the author's near death experience. I hadn't really drawn a connection to the figures exiting the building and walking into the light until then. I guess they are both spiritual experiences.
