Cloud Paintings

The paintings shown here were completed during 2017-18.  I became engaged by the marvelous heaps of cloud that seemed to dominate the skies above the Island for many weeks early that year.  I showed several at my Open Studio event in July 2017 and later at the Yarmouth Gallery.  Since then I have picked up on the theme again.

In the cloud series of paintings I have used water miscible oils and a cold wax medium to achieve a dry, textured surface on fine canvas
