Great atmosphere.

Esther, thank you. Gray can be very special. It's exciting to me when it is. I'm glad you liked it

Oh this is really clever... I love the gray ambiance and the touch of light in the horizon... Wonderful!

Hi Annette. It's funny. When I saw this sky (and water), I didn't see gray, at all. I saw luminescent purples, lavenders, and turquoises. Some grays are so subtle, mouse fur, for example, or dove feathers, and beautiful in their quiet voice. Some 'grays' are bursting with opportunity. I seized the opportunity.

Now I am hungry to do more like it, but I"m afraid to 'repeat' myself. On the other hand, can I even replicate this? Now that is a question I'm trying to avoid answering (to myself, because if I do, I'm going to have to do something about it). Thank heaven I started this line of thought because I hadn't articulated this well to myself until now. Looks like I have to paint more gray skies afterall

Thank you for prompting this, Annette!

Re: February 28th, 6:28am

The way the colors interact in your "gray" sky is just beautiful, Aly. I don't know what that kind of sky is called where only a little strip of daylight shows but it's my favorite kind. I sure hope there will be more like this one coming; it's a gorgeous painting and the mood is really special.

Wow, everything really comes together! Made it look easy, but I know it’s not. Feels good when a piece works this good. All those in between colors, so beautiful.
