Calla Lily Sunset



Driving up the California coast on Highway 1 between Big Sur and Carmel there’s a valley with water streaming into the ocean. Between the months of January and March wild Calla lilies grow in vast fields and the sight is really spectacular.  As I wandered through the Calla lilies I found my spot and waited for the sun to set, eventually capturing this scene.

The biblical verse in this painting is:

הנצנים נראו בארץ עת הזמיר הגיע וקול התור נשמה בארצנו.

The righteous blossoms are seen in the land, the time of your song has arrived, and the voice of your guide is heard in the land

(Shir Hashirim chapter 2:12)
