Landscape in oil:September Sky
September Sky Over Foothills©2010C.L.Burgess 5x12 oil on linen
Houses are burning in an enormous fire in a canyon near Boulder. As I painted these clouds, I prayed for rain. I watched a house completely destroyed by flames within fifteen minutes, live on TV, yesterday. So far over 90 homes are gone, 3500 people displaced and some 7,200 acres have been engulfed with little containment, if any. So rain is badly needed. The skies behind me looked rain filled although I suspect that was ash. Nothing is permanent.
Painting moving clouds is a challenge. The sky was streaked with fingered layers of steel blue, gray and white with a peek of cerulean now and then. Cumulous clouds were building to the Northwest, hopefully with rain for Boulder.
