Sky paintings

Golden field and clouds  12x16    oil
I love these simple subjects that pack such a punch of delicious color and joy.   I'm doing a series of sky paintings and enjoying this new subject very much.
Joy in the sky  16x20    oil

This larger painting is based on the first painting in this post.  For this second larger painting I enjoyed making the clouds more geometric and also allowed a red underpainting to show through.   These points of red make the painting more active and interesting.

This painting is for my show "Wide Open Spaces" at Duke Raleigh Hospital, Raleigh, NC, January 2012
