A Hat of Cloud and Sky





That Mother Earth is such a diva!  A different hat for every day...sometimes two or three on the same day.  She's got the somber and moody gray, the clear blue that everyone loves and drop dead gorgeous rainbow one full of pink, orange and purple.  So I've been looking at, drawing and painting landscapes these past few days.  I couldn't seem to come up with an idea for an image so I went with the simplest...paint a line near the bottom of a panel and suddenly you have realms.  Earth and sky or sky and sea...the possibilities are endless!  I really enjoyed creating these small landscapes and found that once the base colors were painted they each took on a very different and distinct character. Each one called out for a little something extra which took a bit of experimenting but I think they feel pretty balanced???

oh they are lovely, the colours remind me of warm weather... we are coming into it and you are leaving it. They have a wonderful milky feel to them (milky was the only word I could think of) and I really like the added bits of typed paper...


just lovely...

These are so beautiful!
I love the atmosphere you created in the bottom one. Love the colors and the paper that you used.

My partner and I were just gazing and admiring all the work in your shop. We both love the Waverly Pond painting. Are there two of them?

Thanks for your kind comments on my blog.

I sure love this internet art energy!
