I am drawn to the sky. I love observing the changes in the colors and textures of the clouds: the blues reflecting off the sky, different shades of white, mixed with grays, and bits of lavender or hints of lemon yellow here and there. Depending on the season, there is a surprising variety. Recently, this Autumn, our clouds have been surreal. Enormous and fluffy, with expansive shapes and vibrant colors. Our sunsets here in Erie are known for their dramatic color. They're often awe-inspiring. I've lived here a long time, but I'll never take them for granted. If I painted the atomic pinks and tangerine glow as I see them, It wouldn't look realistic. It would look exaggerated and otherworldly. These past few weeks, I've had my eye on the sky, and I've focused on painting the many different types of clouds I can find in my part of the world.
Painted on a 12x12x1/2 inch gallery wrap canvas.

The real challenge, getting back into a work mode, finding creative spark, finding time to see it through. It has been an interesting summer, filled with with highlights and some very low lights.
