I decided to use my tiny painting as a study for this larger version. I’m happy to be finding some painting time after a busy December and January.

The sky of this painting reminds me of a jigsaw puzzle. If I made a cut along each power line, can you guess how many pieces would make up the sky? I counted 74. That’s right – 74! (No wonder this painting took me so long).
Some of you may not want to look at this painting. We have been waiting a long time for summer to arrive, so you likely don’t want to be reminded of the piles of snow that melted just a couple of months ago. I think (hope ?) that summer is finally here, so I’m not sure what compelled me to paint this cold grey scene. I think that what really interested me was the criss-cross of power lines dividing up the sky. And on this little canvas (6″ x 6″), it was a lot of fun to do.
I’ll do something warmer next time, I promise.
