I painted this from a series of photos I took along a favorite walk in northwest Connecticut. It had been sunny and these enormous end-of-the-world looking clouds came out of nowhere. It was a spectacular show. One of the things I hoped to achieve with this one was to show that the clouds have volume. I also grayed down the color of the sky and the landscape so the clouds were the star of the painting.
