6x6, oil on gesso panel, $75.00
Interstate 5 can be a very long ride home through the Central Valley, from the Bay Area to So Cal.  The view is field after field of farm land with distant hills and mountains.  Depending on the season and crop it goes from green to brown.  I am always drawn beyond the fields to the hills and mountains low on the picture plane.  The sky becomes a big open canvas.  So when a storm comes rolling in, it paints a vision for all eyes to behold.  As a passenger I can sit back and enjoy the gallery of changing light, color and form.

The coming storm, you capture it very well, in both the painting and the words.

Love both of these stormy paintings! You have such a wonderful grasp of grays and how to use them for creating incredibly dramatic atmospheres.

I love paintings that feature the sky as the focal point. This is beautiful.
