I painted this piece titled Patterned Sky earlier in the summer when I had blue skies and puffy white clouds on my mind. After it was finished it spent a few months in a gallery on exhibit and has since sold to a new owner. But I realized you haven't really seen it properly and now is as good as any to make a post about it.
There are a few details about the painting that make me happy. For no particular reason one thing is the circle shape in the lower right corner. I have a fondness for circle shapes. They make smile. That's all.
And then there is the patterned clouds in a blue sky all lined up in rows. When I was painting them I couldn't stop thinking about being a little kid again laying on the soft summer grass, looking up at the sky, searching for soft fuzzy animal shapes and cool interesting cloud patterns as they floated by.
