Recently, one evening we were in our car at a friend's house, waiting for our daughter to come back from car-pooled youth group. We saw our first fireflies for the season and then we saw two small glowing lights going up in the sky. No, it wasn't a UFO, but two beautiful glowing lanterns that people release. We watched as they ascended into the night sky and eventually they dimmed and burnt out. A few minutes later we saw another set going up. It was captivating to watch and we felt like we had front row seats to our own little light show. I was inspired by the glowing lights to do this firefly painting and show their glowing lights ascend into a dark summer sky.
