"Painting clouds is a passion of mine. I find them endlessly compelling. It’s hard to capture them in a painting en plein air, but I have an 18 x 24 gray sketchpad that I take out and do quick studies of the moving clouds in charcoal and white chalk, just to study their nuances. This muscle memory comes into play when I do a large studio piece such as this one. As much as there is drama in the clouds, the small cloudburst, or perhaps virga (rain that doesn’t hit the ground), at the bottom of 'Distant Storm' is just as important."
