Sky study 8


...Because some skies are dramatic.




Ugh...woke up to this. (Typical Colorado; yesterday was short sleeves and sandals.)




Flex-o-kitty.

Gwen Bell said...

Love all of your recent sky studies but this one is eye popping. Can't get enough of that gorgeous gold!

The boneless cat...too funny!

Edward Burton said...

your skies are absolutely beautiful and white cat has always funny positions!

Hi Dana, thank you. Not sure how long the current clouds obsession will last...but that's kind of a good thing. I never know where the next obsession will take me.

Hi Gwen, thanks. Rumi sends you a boneless handshake. Do you remember Gary Larson's boneless chicken farm cartoon? ;)

Thank you, Edward!

Hi Jane, thanks. I am somehow fearful of trying a sky study in oils. I have no idea why. But that's why I need to just go and try it. Perhaps today. :)

Artemisia - Merci beaucoup! We are quite in love with our crazy chat blanc and his silly positions.

I love your skies on PastelMat. How big are they?
That cat is toooo much!

Greetings Jala,

I love the yellow golden glow in the painting as it brings it too life, filled with energy. The sky that you painted feels like a scene right after a storm when the sun returns from out of the darkness.

Thank you for sharing,
Egmont

Wow, this one is a real eye-catcher. Yellow in the sky can be very tricky and sometimes easily kitschy.
Well, not in your case.

The absolute best best best thing to come out of being away and minus internet for a week, is that I get to scroll through such a fantastic body of work.
And your pastels are stunning too.

OK, seriously, Rumi and animals aside,
HOLY MOLY Jala, these sky paintings ( can't really call them paintings if they're pastels but they are not studies in my mind, they're finished works of beauty ) are exquisite.

I'm still catching up and have to come back here for more open mouth gazing....
Boffo, Jala.

Beautiful sky, this one my favorite so far. What an odd kitty that is. (:
