Big Prairie Skies

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.
