This is the last of the current batch of cloud-shaped paintings Theoretically the shape is great for a kids room, but not necessarily the poem written in it, if you want your child to ever sleep:
Stars between clouds
a night to stay up and watch
until the sun rises.
Thought I was going to sell this one over the weekend at Flagstaff, but it didn’t happen. Anyway, happy 4th of July everyone, even if you’re not somewhere that’s celebrating Independence Day. When I started creating this painting it wasn’t especially intended to be a 4th-of-July painting, but after I got the stars down, it spoke to me that this is what it wanted to be. And like the fact that the shape resembles the triangularly folded flag. The poem on it is:
The fourth of July
stars bursting against the night
and raining color.
….. there went the link. The link to the actual youtube video. No, I have no idea what happened in the mailchimp world, but here is the actual functional video link!
Here’s a link to my monthly newsletter. I’ve been waiting to put this subject out there for a while, as you’ll see if you follow the links……..
This one is a sibling of Night Storm II – same refractured watercolor, I probably painted it with some of the same acrylics on the palette, but an utterly different shape and feel. I’ve named it Nebula I because I like it so much I’m sure there will be a Nebula II at some point. This one could truly be hung any way up, as long as you don’t mind the direction of the signature.
Here’s another foray into differently shaped canvases. A very abstract piece for that slender space that just needs a pop of color. However despite looking quite narrow, the curve means the panel is actually 11″ wide. This is one of three ‘siblings’ made from a single 18×24″ watercolor of a starfield, but presented as a dark swirling storm.
