Recently, I began tearing old paintings into cloud shapes and working them into the abstract skies that I create. The most exciting of these clouds are ones which are made from old still life paintings. The cloud shape contains deeper illusionistic space which is in direct contrast to its role as an object in the larger space of the painting. I like the push pull that is established. The clouds which are located within the sky also become windows onto another place.
