Utah Cloud Study

"Utah Cloud Study", 8" x 10", Oil on Museum Board
This is another simple study of clouds over Utah. I am always drawn to painting skies and capturing the movement and ephemeral quality of clouds.

Purchase this unframed painting.


  1. I like the BIG sky in this composition. The clouds voluminous and the atmosphere is nicely done....I like the large active strokes near the top of the painting and smaller brushstrokes toward the horizon.

  2. Cheri and Linda--thanks for your comments! Clouds are such a fun challenge!
