Living Sky

This was so fun. I love the power in this sky and the complimentary colours of yellow with dark purples. This is the time of year that we have some great skies in Saskatchewan. The phrase on our license plates is "Land of the Living Skies" and so the painting was named.

Hi Rahina,

How have you been? Thank you so much! I really appreciate that. Although I do not consider myself a true "Daily Painter", this project has put a little oomph into my creative life and I am having a lot of fun with it.

Take care,

Nicki
