30 paintings in 30 days - Day 2

This, guys, THIS is what Oklahoma looks like. No, not the whole state, but this painting is so representative of my time here -- the enormous clouds, the straight highways and county roads, the trees that are forever on the horizon, the way the clouds look somehow heavy and weightless at the same time...

I took the photo for this painting in late May, when my husband and I were headed back to Enid after spending a night in Tulsa for a wonderful Leon Bridges concert. We drove through some kind of dicey looking clouds to this glorious-ness on the other side.

Inspiration below, as well as the storm we (mostly) skirted to get there.

I've got so many great photos in my queue. Feeling pretty excited about the rest of this month.
