"Colorado North Star" 6 x 8 oil on linen__a study for a BIG ONE___$250 if you want it
The half-moon was up behind me, glowing off these clouds. Somewhere behind the mountain there was a thunderstorm which fickered under these clouds. It was far enough away that we couldn't hear the thunder. I am continually amazed at how dark the Colorado skies are, and appreciate that our canyon runs due north-south, because I like to watch the weather roll down from the north. At night the North Star is BRILLIANT, as are every star in every other constellation....I will be painting this again BIG for my galleries!
