Art isn't easy...

I can definitely relate to the line in the musical Sunday in the Park with George:

Art isn't easy. 

I've been working (ok, that's putting a fine note on it - struggling is a much better word) for a couple weeks on developing a gallery based on clouds, weather, atmospheric textures.  I'm not close to converging the concept yet, but it's heading toward a more abstract bent, perhaps focused on the patterns and atmospherics of the evening sky.  I've accumulated a few of the images in my gallery here, and will continue to work and refine the concept over the next month or so.

Right now, I'm working in 16x9 ratios (the weather seems to accommodate that well), but may end up with 1x1 to emphasize pattern and texture, and remove the 'landscape' component naturally inherent in the wider format.  We'll see...I've bounced around a lot with this concept, and haven't been even close to satisfied with what I've come up with.  I sense this is headed somewhere productive (let's hope!!) - if not, well, I guess I'll have some nice backgrounds for my computer desktop :)

Here's a few of my favorites from the developing gallery...
