Large Volumes in the Sky - Volume 2: Clouds

LARGE VOLUMES IN THE SKY SERIES

Virgil Thomson's choral work, When I survey the bright celestial sphere, was the inspiration for this encaustic artist's book. The piece begins, When survey the bright celestial sphere, so rich with hewels hung, that night doth like an Ethiope bride appear, my soul her wings doth spread and heav'nward flies, the Almighty's mysteries to read in the large volumes of the skies.

These artist's books form a series that celebrates the language of the sky much like the Psalmist conveys in Psalms 19, where it reads that 'the heavens declare the glory of God, the firmament showeth his handiwork...there is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard."
