I captured a high resolution of this painting before the packing begins! Getting ready to send a group of works to Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
I have always loved watching clouds, in that way I’m not alone.
I have been recycling painting panels lately. Finding old paintings, removing the paint and starting new work. I dug this one out, always drawn to something about it. I put a few hours into it yesterday. Now it will live to fight another day, like me.
Three 24″x24″ paintings on the studio counter. Sometimes it is good just to start painting… no clear destination. These cloudscape paintings were freeing to paint. I am not sure if I will keep these but it doesn’t really matter.
I have some large square panels I am playing with in my studio!
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.
