This painting is my latest creation based on one beautiful late afternoon in the early Spring when I was walking my sweet old chocolate lab along the bluffs south of Half Moon Bay. As we finished our walk, the golden sun fell lower in the sky and some spectacular storm clouds rolled in along the Pacific Ocean. The vivid colors and subtle patterns were breathtaking! Every few seconds the sky would change in color, tone and pattern. I spent the next hour taking hundreds of photos of these beautiful skies in an effort to commit to memory as much as possible. This particular image captures the storm as it began to recede.
Sheila spends many hours studying clouds from the cockpit of her sailboat on the California coast. She's frequently blessed with beaming sunrises and storms that create beautiful displays of light streaming across the ocean 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, and her work has been exhibited at the prestigious L'Espace Bateau Lavoir in Paris.
