Pink Clouds in an Oklahoma sky

This is a brand new painting.  We have had some wild thunder storms lately and the sky has been a new surprise every day.  I really loved the way this one turned out with the dusty country oil road with approaching storm clouds.  This one is for sale by auction on my ebay gallery right now.  it is a 16x20 oil on canvas.  To visit this painting, and others in my gallery, CLICK HERE

Another Oklahoma Sky

To visit this painting in my Ebay Gallery Click Here

Billowing Clouds on an Oklahoma Prairie, 16x20  oil painting by Margaret Aycock.  One thing Oklahoma does very well is amazing skies.  I get lots of inspiration around here and up on the Osage Prairies. I had been working on a painting of an Oklahoma sky in my adult painting class and when I came home, the sky presented me with a beautiful, ever changing display of white, billowing clouds.  I grabbed my paints and went outside to paint en plein aire.  Some of this is from memory of a couple of different spots that are in the countryside of Oklahoma.

Garden Walk

A sketch made last year in my garden.  I need to take another photo of this as this photo doesn't do the painting justice.
