Happy Clouds…

“You get what you concentrate upon. There is no other main rule.”

  • Jane Roberts

Sometimes you have to look up. Sometimes you have to look behind you. Sometimes you have to look down. The photo is not always in front of you. I was out and about and heard a bird or something and I looked up and saw these layers of clouds racing past on the wind. I switched to the wide angle lens and snapped several photos. Such a great combination of light and dark and whimsy. Of course I remember Bob Ross on Saturdays and his happy trees and his happy clouds. The best part about this is I did not have to paint a thing.

The most interesting thing about watching Bob on those lazy Saturdays when I was trying to take a nap, was that he saw the painting in his head. Most artists will tell you they see the art in their mind and that they are just trying to let it out. In high school art class we were given bible passages and had to create art from that as it was our inspiration. Art classes were always the classes I would get an A in. There is always room for inspiration, you just have to let it in. You have to lay in the grass sometimes and stare at the clouds and daydream and you have to be afraid of taking the road less traveled.

Enjoy the clouds, and put your thoughts to a daydream and see where it leads you!
