Happy Easter!  This is my third vacation painting — it depicts the empty tomb of Christian teaching.  I figure it to be around 11:34 a.m. on Easter morning.

This painting is the product of some fairly prodigious research on my part.  I like to get the details right when dealing with Christian themes, to remind myself and others of the historicity of so many of the Biblical events.  I tried out having a dog in the road, discovering the empty tomb, but couldn’t get him to look right — so out he came.  Sorry Fido.  I may give the pooch another shot and may also insert a Date Palm when I get back from  vacation.
