Practicing the Presence

Smith Mountain Lake #3   16 x 20    oil     $650.

It is hard to capture the colors and the ethereal qualities of a sunset.  The definition of ethereal is:  relating to the regions beyond the earth, spiritual, marked by unusual delicacy or refinement. How do you capture the Presence of the Spirit?  I hope to find out one day when I am actually "beyond the earth" but for the time being, I will continue to practice the Presence!!
