Around a year ago I started painting clouds. Living in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains makes for some very wild and beautiful sky scapes that constantly inspire me. Clouds are kind of a personal symbol of the eternal, and as I like to ponder and process, these have been helpful to me in my journey this past year.
All this being said, I've been quite busy in my studio these past few weeks finishing up this series so that I can shift gears. I've been shooting a ton of research shots and playing with sketches for the next series (more on that in a future post).
I'm not necessarily done with clouds though, I have one more to paint in this installment then I will give that focus a rest. I'm learning that as I get older, I keep returning to earlier tracks with fresh eyes. Clouds may return in that manner!
The main group of the Cloud Series can still been seen at the Airdrie Public Library, it's been held over an extra week until October 30th. A select few will then make their way to the Leighton Christmas Show I'm participating in.
