Midday Matinee

Yesterday, the skies showed their true spring colors. Spring and summer skies are the most anticipated here on the island, at least to anyone who watches them in earnest like I do.

It was so refreshing to get outside and let paint fly, especially after a harried few weeks. The colors, the movement, the smell of green permeating everything around me, just glorious! For me, there is nothing more invigorating than working outside, seeing what's "true" including all the nuances that don't show in a photograph.

Here are the two plein air cloudscapes from yesterday. Soon these will host feathered creatures, the skies allowing us a glimpse of heaven while the birds will keep us tied to the earth.
