I've been working on some whimsical landscapes for a show at the Columbia Art Gallery in Hood River, OR, and although this isn't one of them, it almost could be. I used a photo reference, but most of it was conceptual.

I just about gave up on this painting. I had a vision of a wide-open sky, but it just didn't work. I ended up adding the clouds, and then it all seemed to come together.
I've had cause to be thankful for the photo-gathering trips made the autumn before last, since I did not have an opportunity to go on any this last fall (newborn infants are rather time-consuming!).

It was difficult to get a good photograph of this painting, since it's fairly large and my ceiling is fairly low-- t00 much light washes it out and not enough makes it a bit dull. I tried to adjust it in photo-correction software, but I'm not very good at that! So here it is, a bit on the dark side, but fairly true to color.
I love clouds, and I have an ambition to paint more "sky" scenes. We'll see... I have more ambitions than I have time...
