The Skies of Ireland

skiesofireland8x672dpi

“The Skies of Ireland” is another of a series of paintings I have been doing based on my 2005 trip to Ireland. The most striking thing I find about the island is the countries’ skies. They seem to be flooded with cloud formations. They remind one of the Montana “Big” sky country. This little pastel is only 6” x 8”. It is an experiment in simplicity. It seems the simpler the composition, the easier it is to “read” into a painting.
