My Favorite Sky

"August Afternoon"
24" x 20"
Oil on Canvas
 
Well, I am in a complete mid-winter (please, oh, please, let it actually be late winter instead!) funk.  I am yearning for green fields, green trees, big cumulus clouds, late afternoon thunderstorms, painting outside with no blasted north wind....you get my drift! 
 
I painted this from a photo I took late last summer.  Actually, this is about the fourth version I've painted of the same cloud.  It was a very photogenic cloud.  :)

Wow! This reminds me of the clouds we have in Kansas! I can understand why you have painted this more than once.

Thank you, Teressa! We have some beautiful skies here in Alabama, too!

Were getting green down here in Texas already lol. I can completely understand your funk. It can get pretty dreary here sometimes.
