I am finally redesigning my art website. As I’m going through all of my paintings, Cloud Break jumped off the screen. I painted this painting while living in New Mexico. The slight tear in the clouds suggests some kind of tear in emotion. I feel it while looking at it, but I don’t recall why I felt that when painting the painting. However, as it happens often in my work, even though there is an apparent tear or cut in the clouds, there is light off in the distance on the horizon. Whenever we feel pain, there is always hope and assurance just waiting to find its way to the surface.
Thank you for reading.
