I am thinking about "passages" while painting this one, especially as I complete it. I want to make sure the blue sky can flow through the clouds easily so it does not get caught in them and that the viewer has a place where they can "enter" the painting.

Here is the painting I did this week, still working on a title. This landscape painting is inspired by photos I took while driving (I know, it's a bad habit...) on 295 to see my sister a few weeks ago. The clouds were so beautiful all along the way I just couldn't help but stare at them the whole way to Baltimore. I always feel like the sky is talking to me, urging me to paint it. It seems to automatically arrange itself in such a perfect composition when I happen to be looking at it. A lot of the time it is when I am driving, so I always pray for traffic when it is especially beautiful so I can stop and stare. And maybe take some pictures for later...
