Inspired by a small plein air painting done on Tybee Island last year, “Spanish Hammock, Summer Storm” is a bit bigger studio painting, 18 x 24”.

I kept coming back to the memory of racing clouds casting huge moving patterns of light and shadows across both Spanish Hammock and the distant marsh on the back of Tybee Island.

But it was the clouds themselves I found most fascinating.

All that big movement that comes in the sky just before a storm blows in.

And the edge of the marsh is the perfect place to watch those forming weather patterns, with the wide open canvas of the marsh below to reflect back what’s happening above.
