Kiss the sky

Excuse me while I kiss the sky.
~Jimi Hendrix

Big, open blue skies this afternoon. I had my panel clamped to me easel and all was good. Then when I was carrying my painting indoors a gust of wind blew it from my hand onto my shirt and then onto the ground. It landed half propped on my boot, half on the concrete face down. I picked it up and turned it over with dread and... the spill had actually improved it! lol

Hi Kim!!!!! :):):):)

(ok that's the last time I'll do that, promise)

I love that sky! Those clouds are just beautiful, I can't believe the drop improved it. You are one lucky girl :) I bet that was fun to paint.

Beautiful cloud study! I'm glad that its fall didn't hurt it; there's nothing like that moment of panic when you drop a wet painting.
