Dear everyone I Would like to share this beautiful miracle of the clouds, parting. And totality being revealed as so many were disappointed due to the weather across the Central United States As well as most of the East Coast. I was originally going to go to Kerrville, Texas with some friends in a motor home. After Extensive research on the weather pattern. I opted out although I had other friends all across texas  hopeful that the clouds would part and give them a glimpse of totality. My good friend was in Dallas and miraculously clouds opened up which gave him the most beautiful view that he recorded with only his cell phone. I had several other friends share with  me their experience with the clouds revealing a complete washout with majior disappointment. So I created this piece using my friend's cell phone shot from Dallas to get this amazing  view of Totality  then  combining  the moment of the clouds  parting  painted in ProCreate to reveal the glorious moment of totality.

Statistic showed that 7 billion dollars was spent on travel to the eclipse. Many were very disappointed because of the clouds. So for all of you I would like to share this glorious view of totality.

Clear skies always and keep looking up. 

Sincerely Jon

I don't believe there's enough coronal light to light up clouds.

Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments & all of the likes, although this was not created the purist way nevertheless  it was created  to share with so many others who were less fortunate including myself ,I'm so lucky to have many friends  who shared their amazing cellphone snapshots with me. 

As for your opinion Azure 1961p, I guess seeing is believing if you know what I mean.

Kind Regards Jon
