Summer of Clouds

Summer in Alabama is always hot.  We normally have at least a few days in excess of 100 degrees Fahrenheit.  If we are lucky, afternoon thunderstorms bring occasional rain.  This summer has been one big magnificent picture show full of rain and clouds and fresh green lawns.  Temperatures have stayed in the 80's even for us on the southern most tip of Alabama.  I have become obsessed with the summer of clouds.
I take photographs of the sky.


And I paint clouds.  My best images come from a weekend trip to Moundville, Alabama to attend a family reunion with my husband.  Oh, the clouds we saw along the way over Demopolis, Linden, Marengo and Highway 43!  Of course, there would be paintings.
