Brilliant reds, crimsons and deep purples and blues of the clouds contrast with the areas of pale blue from a sunset sky in this original fine art painting.

This contemporary pastel painting is #3 in a fifteen-part "Abstracted Cloudscape" series I completed last fall.

Photos taken in various locations during different times of the year, day, and weather conditions were then cropped to emphasize the cloud as an abstract form of color and shape.

TITLE: "Sunset Understudy"
SIZE: 12x12 inches
MEDIUM: soft pastel on Strathmore 500-series paper (archival)

I love clouds - watching them, photographing them, and painting them. They are a metaphor of the impermanence of everything around us. Never created or destroyed, they merely change form.

I chose a standard size for these, so that they may framed without a mat in a pre-made frame (not included), if the buyer desires. These also look fantastic displayed together as a group as wall art.

Painting ships with glassine sheet to prevent smudging between two pieces of foamboard for added protection, in a large padded envelope or box, via USPS Priority Mail, insured for full value.

Purchase of this original painting does not transfer copyright or reproduction rights to the buyer, and I retain all future rights to release any non-ACEO-sized pieces as open edition prints or limited-edition glicees.
