Earth Sky

Since finishing my Water Sky series I had in mind to do a series focusing on the earth and sky. These two paintings are the beginning of that exploration. I am looking for a similar interaction of the elements of earth and sky that I found so prevalent with water and sky.

I have always enjoyed watching the sky and the many varied cloud formations, whether subtle or dramatic. What is the relationship of earth and sky in terms of color, light and texture and how does one affect the other in a painting composition? Naturally, the sky is the light source in a landscape. But what else? With these paintings I chose to make the movement and shapes of the clouds a part of the composition that echoes the shapes of the earth.
