Smitten with the Sky Series, Cloudscapes #1-#30

Sometime several years ago while outside painting, I spent the time focusing on painting the sky instead of the landscape in front of me. This experience stuck with me.

Last year, I took some of the cloud studies and grouped them and framed them as a mosaic, and I just loved the effect. In fact this framed grouping has been gracing our bedroom since then, as I find it to be so soothing.

So earlier this year, I began painting more of these cloudscapes on 6 x 6 inch masonite panels. The more I painted, the more I loved how they looked together…

…and now I have 30 of these cloudscapes gracing our bedroom.

 The paintings were hung in a grouping of 30 directly to the wall with archival acid-free tape.

Some of these skies were from various weekend getaways S. and I have taken over the years or from trips to Texas when visiting my grandmother.

This series is very personal and each painting is a love letter to myself and to my husband… something from me, of our time together and where we have been.

UPDATE NOVEMBER 2017:

After moving into our new home in December 2016 and not finding a special home for these paintings, I have decided to offer a portion of the series available for sale.  Please see my Special Sale Page for more information.
