Clouds



A few weeks ago we took a drive to one of my favorite little quilt shops ever, The Buggy Barn about a 1/2 hour out of town in Reardan, WA. It's a converted small barn and is located in the middle of farm land. (rolling wheat fields)
Anyway, after painting all these portraits for so long... I'm planning on painting some roadside landscapes. The car window is a fabulous viewfinder. On this day, the clouds were so beautiful - we need to get out to the country more often!
Addendum...
I was mentioned at a lovely blog yesterday and wanted to say thanks to Karen.

Hi Beth - thanks! They were actually taken while I was driving. Would love to go 'out on location' more often :)

Hi Jeane... yes indeed! Growing up near you - this is fairly new to me and I like it.

These photos are fantastic, especially that first one! (I though it might be a painting at first!) Roadside landscapes are so interesting and I believe in this great country we have such a variance in such views...I drove cross country a few years ago and would love to do a painting cross country trip someday...hmmmm....
