I don't have any special insights into this illustration other than I worked on it a lot... and the background morphed quite a bit as far as lighting and coloring are concerned. I really enjoy watching the sunrise and sunset whenever I can. One of the things I liked most about this series of paintings was the opportunity to paint the beautiful changes that occur in the sky as the Earth moves around the sun... I will never grow tired of that.
