Simply wonderful. As many comments on your submissions or on your profile point out, it is a rare occurrence when one comes upon artworks and themes such as yours on DeviantArt… but it goes to show there is hope yet, perhaps. All your paintings resonate with me, but I am especially moved by this one, the atmosphere of fervent spirituality coming from the warm flames of the candles held by the procession and the sublime mysteries of the night bathed in moonlight… The dome in the foreground is masterfully done as well and, directly echoing the circle of the moon in the sky, it also gives more depth to this serene and comforting scene. Thank you for this -- I look forward to seeing your next paintings.

Thank you very much for such kind words. I am particularly pleased that you see first of all not a picturesque technique, but a sense that I tried to put in and share with the beholder! Realistic technique for me is just a language. In the first place is the spirit.
From heart to heart!

This is quite lovely. Is it wrong I see the Epcot dome in the fore ground and the magic kingdom in the back? 
Over all, this is a great piece.

It is a dome of an orthodox temple. The Sacred Procession underneath. This is the eternal Easter...
