I’ve mentioned before in this blog how much I’m fascinated by clouds. I have nearly walked into trees many times because I was so captivated by beautiful clouds. Fortunately, I have friends and family members who are very understanding and even occasionally save me from a painful intersection with a tree or lamppost. I have to admit that although I’m enthralled by the colors and designs I see in the clouds, I usually have no idea what type of cloud I’m studying. However. I’m thinking of getting a cloud book (yes, there is such a thing) that was recommended by my friend and fellow artist, Karen Margulis. It’s called The Cloud Collector's Handbook by Gavin Pretor-Pinney and contains descriptions and photos of every type of cloud imaginable. The clouds in this painting are to the best of my limited knowledge, cumulus clouds.
