Under God's Sky

Oil on 7x5 archival canvas panel.
New president...Same God....Thank God.

This is yet another submission by me to Karin Jurick's Different Strokes From Different Folks. It's a fun challenge...she puts up a different photo each Wed. night. Artists from all over submit their renditions of it. The variety and creativity is both amazing and instructive.

  1. Oh I like this very much Dean! I love it in fact! That sky is beautiful. Very nice and I like the title too.

  2. Thanks, Karen. In this one, the title just 'came' to did the sky. I merely went along for the ride.
    I like your rendition of this reference. Highly patriotic...very moving!

  3. I really like this Dean, that sky is fantastic and I think it makes the painting.

  4. Hi, Barb, my friend! Thanks for your supportive comment. Those whisps of brighter yellow based clouds were applied with a painting knife...pretty delicate surgery on a small 7x5. Enjoyable.
    So glad you like it!

  5. Love that sky very dramatic!

    Just glowing ! perfect... title and all.

  7. Thank you, Erika, for stopping ing. I checked out your blog. Very nice work...loved the watercolor cow that was done for DSFDF. Are you going to do a Capitol Building painting also?

  8. Hi, Dominique! Thanks for stopping by and the supportive words.

  9. A red sky, but it doesn't read as Armageddon. ..Somehow you were able to paint it with this color in a sensitive manner. Well done!

  10. Thanks, Celeste. I really appreciate your thoughtful observation! It was meant to relay a feeling of protective power.
