"The sky is the main character in this work," says artist Michele Clamp. "Farm buildings beneath the sunlight contrasts with the approaching storm clouds. This highlights the vulnerability of humans and our abilities to control our environment with the sheer power of earth's climate whims. The buildings are placed with broad strokes of color and minimal detail as the sky is, in contrast, painted wet on wet in multiple layers."

Artist Michele Clamp creates watercolor paintings mainly of New England scenes and places she has a personal connection to. "Using traditional brushes and pigments, I enjoy how the simplicity of tools allows me to grapple with the challenges of watercolor," says Michele. "The deceptive simplicity of this medium has a huge attraction for me." As a scientist, Michele worked in many interesting areas including the Human Genome Project. And in 2017, she decided to paint full-time as well as teach art lessons and conduct workshops. Michele states that an idea can take months or years to filter through her brain before sitting down to paint on her easel. In her studio, she enjoys working in peace and quiet with her blinds open to the sun and the trees outside. "As I mostly use watercolor, cleanliness is not so much of a problem," says Michele. "And my husband keeps me on my toes by periodically asking 'Why is there paint on the ceiling?'"
