Clouds II - Landscape

Thunderhead clouds are like the "mountains of the South." You sense their massive size just by looking. These clouds were like out of a Cecil B. DeMille movie. I kind of felt like some kind of miracle was going to happen at any moment! :)

I painted is on a different surface than I usually use.I usually use a #13 Classens double primed linen. This is a medium surface canvas panel. Photoshop picks up the texture more. If I try to hard to downplay it it looks blurry. This is pretty true to how it looks.

Your work is gorgeous. I got the same feeling finding your blog that I have when I log onto Julian Merrow-Smith's site, a catch your breath gasp. Just wonderful!
I found your link there under comments today.
Thank you,
Dona Spillane

Dona,
What a lovely comment! You made my day.
I am sitting here paying bills itching to get back to painting.
Thanks again,
Linda

Linda, what lovely paintings! I invite you to submit some of your work to be published in a book I am writing called, 'If I am the Earth." You can find out more about it on www.ifiamtheearth.org I have this vision of artists who speak for the Earth coming together in a collective voice on behalf of the earth. I think your work speaks that eloquently!
