As you may have noticed, I seem to have a compositional predilection for a horizon line that hovers close to the top of the painting. Tell me why? I honestly don’t know. But I do know it's a fact!

However, from time to time the horizon slips toward the middle, or even, as is the case here, toward the bottom of the painting. I think for this work, "Prairie Thunder” I just needed to see more sky, more rolling thunder!

Stop by Ventana Fine Art on Canyon Road in Santa Fe and take a look at this cloud filled painting. If you stop by on July 9th we can take a look at it together! That would be better!
