Etchings in the Sand…

Thoughts and Photos from the Desert…

The Clouds Sail Overhead…

At least they did yesterday. They are the source of so much beauty, so much nourishment, so much inspiration – and, yes, so much destruction. We’re thankful for them when they appear out here in the desert. They are rare and welcome residents.

    So marvellous, this photo. There is a wonderful quote by Leonardo da Vinci, where he suggests aspiring art students to develop their imaginations by looking at clouds, water stains on walls and so forth. I can see several phantasmagorical heads in this cloud formation. Imagine lying on your back and just watch this cloud morph into amazing forms. Used to love to do that as a kid, and still do. Very entertaining and surprising thing to do.

    The range of greys in this one are more than in a complete tone strip. You could take one of those and find many tones more than the typical one with 9 steps from white to black. G
