Clouds and light

I tend to give a large part of my paintings over to the sky. While I don’t consider myself to have my head in the clouds, I’m usually looking up. Maybe it’s years of sailing that keeps me looking at the weather, maybe it’s my avid interest in birds…whatever it is, I tend to look up. I really love the contrast of the high clear weather clouds, the remnants of the low, stormy clouds, and the glow of the October sunlight on the tops of the trees.
