Cloud Bank - West River Spring

acrylic on canvas
24" x 36

Imagine driving west into a wall of dark and swirling storm clouds and a sinking sun that at the last is a molten orange sliver shot along a sweeping horizon.  The pounding thunderheads dominate the landscape for hours of driving across the high plains.  You’re dipping in and out of sun and shadow, flirting along the edge of the weather.  Next, try synthesizing all that road, storm, energy, land, and light, along with the feelings generated by the grand spectacle into the space of a canvas.  Go – fear not – the power of the thing will propel your paint and brush in the first hours.
