fair weather clouds


When I did this painting in May,
it reminded me of the 4UR, a ranch in southern Colorado
 which belongs to some good friends of ours.
.
It's one of the most beautiful places that I know of.
Anywhere on earth.


Fair weather clouds build most afternoons.
Sadly, they now have become horrible smoke clouds,
created by the West Fork Complex fire.

 Colorado is burning.

Thanks, Celeste. Not counting marginal composition, I like the painting, too. But hey, I'm not about to criticize the arrangement of the clouds. After all, we did it to ourselves.
