This is a remembered image of a passing storm over the south San Francisco Bay. I built up multiple layers of glazing, as well as dry brush technique, to achieve the luminous nature of light. The image continues around the sides of the gallery wrapped canvas. It is varnished, wired, and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Sheila

Sheila spends many hours studying clouds from the cockpit of her sailboat in the south San Francisco Bay. She’s frequently blessed with beaming sunrises and storms that create beautiful displays of light streaming across the salt flats or shimmering off the nearby coastal mountain range. Sheila’s award-winning paintings have been exhibited in museums and galleries throughout the United States and Europe. She has received recognition from the National Arts Appreciation Program, as well as put on a prestigious show of work at L’Espace Bateau Lavoir in Paris.
