"The Skies at Capitol Reef (Utah)" by Karla Nolan, palette knife oil painting

I painted this art piece some time ago and was never satisfied with it; something about the skies, too flat and lifeless. Don't you think the skies have a lot of life in them? I do. When I was younger and we'd be driving somewhere as a family, I'd just space out in the car, looking at the skies, seeing only blue. I was anything but observant. Yeah, there were a few white clouds around...but just blue and white in the sky. Now my take on it is that artists should be especially observant, but I wasn't an artist back then or even considering becoming or imagining being an artist. The sky was blue, that was that, no more to say. As hard as it is to say: I was wrong! Very wrong. The skies have so many colors in them on a daily basis, it is amazing....light blue, cobalt, cerulean, aqua, turquoise, sea mist greens, of course whites, greys. Looking back now, I realize that there's far more to art and observance than meets the eye, no pun intended! Open your eyes!!!!!
