I've been drawing up a composition for a new painting. This one is imaginary, yet it is also
inspired by my location. Like the last one, I have drawn a
building in my own yard, but I am adding figures and other elements that aren't really there.
I have tinted my canvas with a wash of raw umber and vermillion.

Oregon Sky #2 1988, oil on canvas, by Amy Crehore 11" x 14"

When I first moved to Oregon from the east coast, I was struck by the ever-changing skies.
I painted a few small skyscapes.
I scanned one of them (shown here) and this is exactly what it looked like:
big ominous rain clouds moving over top of pure blue sky.
