As the late summer arrives I find that I love to watch the cloud formations.
Big, thick clouds full of promise and puffy fecundity. The Albuquerque box might be our most famous weather occurance but I still like my clouds

Marsden Hartley, a contemporary of Georgia O'kefffe, spent some quallity cloud watcting time. The puffy, late afternoon clouds show up in many of NM paintings.




I found this handy cloud chart for kids sponsored by UCAR.
It may be informative, but it is not the way I see the clouds. I love the meditative watching of the clouds. I like to find the shapes within and watch them as they change.
I find that this is a restorative activity, a good creative exercise.

This one looks like a Golden Retriever


Here we have a tub duck over Washington.


A turtle about to take out the top of that elm.


A snail over Martineztown followed by a UFO.


This one, above the light post,looks a Samoyed or may a Pom.

I was having a discussion about the clouds here with another DCF member who lives in California. He and his wife will be moving here soon. I told him about my aunt and uncle who recently visited from the L.A. area and all they could do was look up and comment on the blue skies and clouds for a whole week! Our clouds are pretty spectacular here!

My favorite cloud painting is by Georgia O'Keefe.
