How I love the summer monsoons. Yes, it is a little more humid because of it, however, with this humidity comes some of the grandest, dynamic, breathtaking, skies. Even though we are outside less during the summer heat, I often leave the studio midafternoon to chase the beauty in the skies. The mountains around the Sonoran Desert often push the warm humid air to the higher, cooler altitudes. These clouds are mountains in the sky, being many tens of thousands of feet high. A few times while doing a quick afternoon sketch in the summer, out in the broad, open spaces out of nowhere a cooler wetter blast of delightful air disrupts the painting session. Turning around you see the massive rain clouds blowing your way, however, the cooler moist down drafts often blow miles ahead the desert storm. You can smell the rain and wet desert 5 or 10 minutes before the rain may pass through. We have hiked and painted much of the mountains in this painting. While out in these foothills we were in a cloud shadow and looked out at this grand scene. Mountains, cliffs, canyons, Cumulus Nimbus clouds, rich colors as we head toward sunset. The drama and beauty of nature on full display before our eyes. As a family of fine artists, we must do our best through our oil paints to capture the feelings we felt while being there and convey this to you so you can experience this also. We bring the drama of life to your home.
