“…I can truthfully say that nothing during my life has impressed me so much as the sky. It is my religion and my philosophy. It is my cathedral, and I believe it to be a source of inspiration to anyone who wants to look upward.” Eric Sloane – How You Can Forecast the Weather p. viii
I am not aware of another statement made by artist Eric Sloane, nor made by someone referring to Sloane’s works, which so encapsulates his reverence for the sky. It seems fitting, as we near the beginning of the 2014 season of the Eric Sloane Museum, to pause and reflect on the significance of Sloane’s sentiments.
