Cloud Textures__6 x 8


"Cloud Textures" 6 x 8 juicy oil on linen panel__$150 if you are first to ask!
This painting began as a little cloud study. In the Colorado mountains in summertime, one little cloud can blow up into a huge thunderhead in a matter of moments. I was on the porch with binoculars, watching my kids and a couple of their friends climb the mountain...Since They decided to blaze a new trail, I never did locate them...so I painted. The cloud kept growng, and I kept adding paint!

I love this one too. I think we are kindred painting spirits, Virginia! Lots of times when I see your work, it feels like something I'd choose to paint. We both love drama and colorful light, and SKIES! Maybe some day we can get together and paint out somewhere!
