A quiet, cloudy sky hangs overhead, the low horizon line magnifies the scale of the scene. White, beiges, greys and hints of violet and ochre capture the nuanced light. "Painted with rich tones and soft blended brushstrokes, this process creates a misty effect which has a magical dreamy quality to it," explains Kelly.
Kelly Money is fascinated by clouds. So much so, in fact, that she strives to capture “every combination and formation of clouds I can possibly see and paint.” To portray the vastness of the sky, Kelly often uses a very low horizon line in her compositions. The result is a peaceful, dreamlike effect. Many of Kelly’s paintings are inspired by the view from her home in Pennsylvania where she lives on a plot of land with her husband, two little boys, and dogs. When she’s not making art, Kelly enjoys hiking, traveling, and yoga.
