What can I tell you, I like clouds. A close up on one catching the last light. Though the days are getting a bit longer the sun is still low. Often clouds seem to be the only ones enjoying the sunshine.
I have been working on very moody paintings. It is the kind of work I love.
To mix things up I thought I would try to capture the brilliance of some of our recent sunsets. They seem especially dramatic after a gloomy day. The clouds lifting to an explosion of light.
An image from my art studio. This small painting attempts to captures the light of a gorgeous evening in North Idaho.
I find myself chasing ethereal beauty in my work. Trying to find that otherworldly magic that is impossible. Once in a while I catch a glimpse and it keeps me running.
Warm evening sun coloring giant clouds! I finished this one last week, one of those paintings that seemed to paint itself. I chose not to question it. I really like the blending and mark making in this piece.
Once again I find myself obsessed with clouds and skies. This painting kept changing and restarting. I probably destroyed 2 perfectly good works before finding my way here. Unusual colors and lighting won me over in the end!
A colorful cloud painting on the studio counter with some friends! This one doesn’t have the apocalyptic vibe of yesterday’s post.
Another day in the studio, I am grateful.
Here is a link to some of my work currently at Radius Gallery:
As winter’s dark slips into our daily lives I am feeling inspired by the changing atmosphere. The sun staying low creating dramatic light and shadow. I am also a fool for giant clouds crawling across the land. It seems I like my landscapes moody.
An atmospheric cloudscape I just completed. The sky is a constant source of inspiration to me!
Delicate atmospherics above the big water. A subject that is always intriguing to me, keeps drawing me back.
