Rainbow Clouds

Rainbow Clouds 8x10 oil on canvas

The living room walls were glowing from the light. I quickly grabbed my camera and ran outside and snapped some reference photos of this array of rainbow clouds .  I'm not sure if I have ever seen the clouds in this formation before.  I was excited to paint this colorful display. Created with a palette knife and lots of colorful paint.

Cloud Dreams

Cloud Dreams 8x10 oil on canvas

Watching clouds from on a lazy summer day brings a sense of peace and comfort for me.  Do you take time to watch the clouds floating by? I remember as a child laying on the grass and finding animals and people in the clouds. 

I created this using a palette knife and layers of oil paint. 

These are filled with color and texture.

Red Buds Blooming

Red Buds Blooming 10x8 oil on canvas

I continue my study of color in these small landscape paintings. Since it is time for the red bud trees to bloom I wanted to explore the color in the blooms. They look purple in the landscape, but when you get closer they take on a hot pick color. Or a mix of the two. I will keep practicing to produce that perfect combo.

I did post a video of the start of this painting. I continued to work on it and scraped most of the paint off and like this new look.

This was inspired from a photo I took at the Ft. Worth Japanese Gardens. We were there for a wedding and had the opportunity to wander through the garden. The sun was setting casting a glow to the blooming bushes. It was a fun challenge to make sense of the flower bush.
