Above: Clouds floating over Menards. I stood outside the car, paints sitting on the hood, and sketched. Staedtler Pigment Liner for the large cloud, then just painting with the Niji waterbrush and watercolor. Strathmore 500 Series Mixed Media Paper. 7.75 x 9.75 page size.

Lately I go our for my bike ride and when I get to my turn around point I do my shoulder stretch and look up in the sky and see the most amazing blue sky with delightful clouds. Or I'll go on a walk late in the afternoon and off in the distance peeking between two trees is the most adorable cloud.
Dick would probably like it if I stopped telling him how much I love living on a big blue marble.
My friends would probably like it if I didn't interrupt conversations by yelping and pointing at clouds, the way some people point at cute babies (I know, that's so rude, pointing at babies isn't it?).
I've been catching up on work this past week and not been out much, except for my bike ride. So I think I enjoy seeing the clouds more than usual.
I just love living on a big blue marble.
