This body of work is the visual journey of finding my own painting style through a subject that is ever changing yet always fascinating to capture. If you were to be looking through the photos on my phone, you would notice I document clouds on most road trips and walks through my neighborhood. Pretty much any time I am outside, my eyes turn skyward.
Compositionally, these pieces for the most part are influenced by the magical moments that happen at dawn and dusk outside. I enjoy the meditative practice of blending my colors by stacking them individually on the canvas in what I call my "capsule" shapes and edges. Reducing clouds down into this shape is relaxing for me and I love how they build up in each piece. I also thoughtfully apply gradients and transparent washes to add elements of dimension here and there as well.
