Jo Brown, "September," 16" x 8" oil on archival canvas board [ref. # 188.8.131.52] Each part of the sky over a particular place has its own clouds. At this spot on Cape Cod Bay, facing east, these scant high clouds occur on blue-sky autumn days. The tall, narrow, almost Japanese composition allows me to depict the extraordinary complexity of a clear blue sky. This plein-air painting was completed at 2pm on September 4, 2013, at the ebb tide at Skaket Beach in Orleans, MA; copyright Jo Brown 2013 all rights reserved.
