The clouds were playing tricks just after a brief rain. Glorious rain! The front range looked black, snuggled up against Mingus. And the clouds, they were in on the fun. I saw a face clear as the eyes on my head. It was there. Two eyes, a nose, and a hint of a mouth. Now I can only see the eye. Do you see it?

When we feel stuck, look at the sky.
The clouds remind us that everything changes.

The same palette I used yesterday. Different placement and proportions. I used a brayer to apply the base coat of Tawny. Hints of it are still visible under the turquoise.

Two busy days forced me to keep things simple. Not easy. Just simple. Grateful for a few moments of peace and quiet. And color!

I found I could say things with color
and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way.
Georgia O’Keeffe

Color!
What a deep and mysterious language,
the language of dreams.
Paul Gauguin
