Have I mentioned that we have had the most incredible skies here lately? Well, we have. The kind of brilliant blues with big puffy clouds that make you stop and remark, "would you look at that!". The changing patterns of light have been breathtaking. It was on a recent drive home from town (I wasn't driving, so don't worry) that I snapped a few photos just because the sky was so remarkably beautiful. One of those photos was inspiration for this watercolor.

I have to agree with Jennifer; it is indeed breathtaking. I also like that you captured the cloud shadows on the ground. I've seen those often but rarely seem them in a painting.

Ann, the first words out of my mouth were, "Oh, wow." This is gorgeous.

Ann the painting is so beautiful and I know what you mean the skies have been beautiful. I have never noticed so many lovely sunsets before - is it because I am getting older and slowing down? (LOL) - thanks for sharing.
