"Cloud Study No.2"

Oil on 1/8" Gessoboard. Approx 6"x6"

For the past 10 years or so, I've wanted to paint a ceiling with clouds. I just never had the guts to do it. It certainly would be a 'one sitting' painting. If I did do that it would probably look something like this painting.

Hey Mike!

This painting is very loose for sure but I think you did a GREAT job capturing the sunlight.

Squint at the painting and you'll see what I mean.

I'd love for you to do a larger, tighter version of this!
