The painting above is titled “Glowing Clouds”.

This painting is based upon viewing pictures of many different cloud types, shapes, and colors.

Sky watchers often report seeing rainbow colors in clouds. Most likely, what they are seeing is an iridescent cloud. Unless you are a scientist, a student, or a hobbyist of atmospheric optics, you really don’t care. You are just captivated by the phenomenal sight of the cloud shapes and colors.

It is my hope that my painting reminds you of experiences you’ve had viewing clouds. Allowing your imagination to provide a brief escape into those clouds as you observe faces, animals, and other shapes of all kinds. The shapes and colors exist only for a brief moment and then they vanish as others appear.

Do you enjoy cloud watching? Have you seen a “rainbow cloud”? I’d be interested in sights and experiences you’ve had with cloud viewing.
