Hwy 599 Rainbow Diptych, 16″ x 80″

I love skies–clear blue from top to bottom, piled high with sunlit clouds, marbled with swirls of feathery translucence, lurid at sunset, purple with monsoon rains, soft with evening gradations of turquoise and lilac. I aim to create a similar experience with my paintings so that others might wake to a sunrise feeling hopeful, pause during the day to lose themselves in a cloudscape, see promise in a rainbow, relax in the glow of evening, be awestruck by a thunderstorm.
