I've been having a really bad spell of non-creativity recently. This piece was started in an effort to break out of that period, mainly as a way of trying to show myself I need to chill out and not take myself so seriously and just 'do' rather than 'try' (getting all Yoda on my ass there).
If there's one thing I really enjoy painting and get a huge kick out of the results and thats clouds. Love 'em or hate 'em, its so rewarding. The piece was started from a blank canvas and worked up from a simple gradient to get the basic horizon. Then I just slapped on the colors and shapes and stopped thinking about what I was trying for and just let it take shape.
The only thing that bugged me is this: I'm not a religious person. But the title was there almost from the moment I saw the cloud shapes form. It just seemed right. No matter what I thought of changing it too, this fitted the mood and feel of the piece so well. So, I'm sorry if it offends people that I've used a title like this. Its not meant to offend or anything. Its a phrase I can remember hearing a long time ago and its stuck with me for a long time. I am not going into why it has so much meaning for me, but trust me, it does, and this suits it well.
