Growing up in a very flat part of the world (central Illinois) clouds were often the most interesting part of the landscape. It was easy to imagine that distant storm clouds were mountains, giants, or some other fantasy. With this piece I’ve tried to impart a bit of that wonder by making the sky the main focus and by making the clouds a bit stranger than what might be natural or expected.
The foreground trees in the multiscreen version were a late addition. I hope no one minds that they are absent from the single-screen frame but I really wanted the sky to be the focus here.
