“Heavy hearts, like heavy clouds in the sky, are best relieved by the letting of a little water.” Christopher Morley
“The soul can split the sky in two and let the face of God shine through.” Edna St. Vincent Millay
On the day I was trying to capture this cloud on canvas there was a very different colour formation in the sky. I spent a great deal of time creating this painting, more time than I ever spent before. Recalling the good advice once given by a fellow painter - not to permit myself to become frustrated - I put this canvas aside. Then one day, I looked up at the sky and found a similar cloud formation. Luckily, I had my camera with me, took a few photos, went home and returned to this canvas. That inspired me to complete this painting to my satisfaction. How powerful was that simple piece of advice - not to permit myself to become frustrated.
