Several years ago I was introduced to the work of an artist from Saskatchewan who has produced many paintings featuring dramatic and expansive prairie skies - other things too but it is these sky paintings that first appealed to me. He renders them in an almost three dimensional and outrageous way that features over-the-top colour with oozing paint that seems to be sculpted onto the canvas. They are utterly fantastic and I often think of these paintings when I see the clouds rolling in. For this weeks post I went to the archives to see if I had something that speaks to this whimsical and dramatic way of looking at the skies that we prairie folk know all too well.
Endress + Hauser are Swiss company specializing in control systems for industry. This is their new building in south Edmonton. One or two people assumed the sky in this photo is faked, but it is not; it is the result of careful timing and a bit of good fortune.
