30 paintings in 30 days - Day 6

This is my first painting from my new picture-taking spot. It's 24"x24" and looks best from about 10 feet (hey, we all have our strengths). At that distance, the clouds have a wonderful diffused quality.

I opted not to paint it, but amongst those trees, there is an apartment complex. My husband and I live in the neighborhood right behind those apartments. I took the photo for this painting from the back side of a strip mall. It is surrounded by fields on two sides and has a clear view of the sky in three directions. I am kicking myself for taking two years to discover it.

For tomorrow's painting, I am finishing up a commission for an assisted living facility in Oklahoma City. The large painting will hang above the fireplace, which is the first thing you see when you walk in the door.

Happy Tuesday!
