Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.

"Sky Curtains" Dramatic Landscape/Skyscape

Original oil painting

Dramatic weather is a challenge to capture, especially with fleeting effects of rain.

Thanks so much for dropping by, Hilda. I'm happy to know the beauty and power of the scene comes through in my portrayal of it.

Mary: We do live in such an amazing place, don't we!? I loved the drama of this scene. And I really like your description... "stunner" makes me smile.

Diane: Thank you! The unveiling is not until July 14, but I will try to get someone to take some pictures. I appreciate the reminder.
