Sky - Painting Challenge - 6

This is my last "sky" post for a while. I may continue in January. This stream is a few miles north of Kokadjo, Maine. The mountain in the distance is Spencer mountain. A late afternoon storm was passing by.

Quote for this Ralph Waldo Emerson 1803 - 1882

"The river, as it flows, resembles the air that flows over it; the air resembles the light which traverses it with more subtle currents; the light resembles the heat which rides with it through space."

Sky - Painting Challenge - 5

My current painting challenge is to include more sky in my works. Usually I focus on the land. This meadow is in Falmouth at Gilsland Farm. This is one of my favorite places to walk in the late afternoon. I saw a fox on the trail while I was there.

Quote for this John Muir - 1838 - 1914

"I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in".
