Sky Sampler
by Cheyenne MacMasters

My Muse is a being of fog and mist. How can a brush recreate such an ephemeral phenomenon? Perhaps it is the feeling as well as the rendering the Muse is seeking. One has in mind the image to portray, and then there is the actual painting that manifests. When in doubt, strike boldly, the sky is roiling. The electrical poles are stalwart, delivering lines of energy despite inclement weather. But what about the mists that came to ground? Perhaps we’ll see that scene next week.

About cheyennepaints

Mists upon the waters and fog in the mountains has my brush dancing on the canvas. It's a game of trusting the illusion. By painting what I see, I become friends with the mountains and the mists. They make me smile. What a relief to be putting my School of Visual Arts and Art Student's League of New York training into practice instead of just sighing wistfully on the sidelines. The day has come to pick up the brush and paint.

    • Thank you for your enthusiastic comment, and for introducing me to the paintings of Charles Burchfield. I’m painting in oil these days. I remembered enjoying your blog when I was posting at Orbs Delight, so I wanted to keep in touch with my painting blog. Thanks for following!
