from a cave to the world

run before the storm

I’ve had this painting called “dog Cave”  (see previous blog) hanging in my studio for it seems like an eternity, but in reality….only about a month. I wasn’t sure what I was trying to say…and whether memory caves were such a good idea anyway.  Who needs to live in a cave? who needs to “remember” the past when the present offers some amazing beauty of it’s own.  If I were always in the past, I might not be open to the present….to the sky!

So, even after some huge amount of work on the “dog Cave”, I took the large brush to this work and transformed it into a painting on the go. I was inspired by this incredible cloud formation I took a photo of last week. I’m finding clouds and sky formations very lovely and I’d like to do more of this kind of work…..really really.  The sky seems to offer a surprise every day with really great ” one of a kind” paintings as a possible new direction. I have a camera full of these daily cloud/weather events. I feel the need to not only record them with my I-Phone,

but also to paint these amazing events.  This may be one of the benefits living in a small town north of a big city.  The sky seems to be a much bigger part of my life every day!  I don’t know why I’ve been resisting the urge to do these clouds when I have an I-phone packed with many great sky images….
