"Quiet Foreboding" Landscape Painting

I've been wanting to paint this picture for some time now, and today ended up being the perfect day to do so. My inspiration comes from a picture I snapped in the car while driving down to SoCal for a wonderful trip to Disneyland with my hunny for our five year anniversary, sans kids. It was the first time either of us had ever gone without a group of people, and it was a blast! We ran around the park like crazy, just living it up and going on any and every ride our hearts desired. It was fantastic!

On the way down the sky was absolutely gorgeous, for there was quite a terrible storm brewing in the hills. Sure made for some gorgeous pictures!

Anyways, one of my kiddos is being rather difficult today (cough, cough... Levi!), and so their naps could not have come soon enough! Having been left in a rather bad mood, I thought that painting would most likely help, and what better to paint than a quick landscape that reflects my emotions right now? So, that is exactly what I did, and I must say I feel way, way better now. Ahhhh.... =)

  1. Each time I come back to this one, I get lost in in for some gives rest and the freedom to "let go".

  2. Oh wow, thank you so much! It's funny, that's what it did for me while I was painting it. It was my little, "let go of the worries of today" piece.
