I hate drawing clouds, never mind painting them. I’m uncomfortable using color. I don’t have patience for a beautiful painting to unfold. I see the canvas in front of me, and then I see the finished product in my head. I’m learning how painting truly is a slow process.
This is a 50 min piece. The photo is courtesy of the AP featured in a Yahoo article about the Santa Barbara fires. I saw the beautiful colors and I just decided to do it. It’s unlike me to go for something like that. Look at my previous paintings…I suck. Let me know what you think. My wife is very encouraging. Family is the best inspiration.
