Karla Winterowd the owner of the gallery I show with in here in Santa Fe , Winterowd Fine Art http://www.fineartsantafe.com/index.php/artists/category/7-jamie-kirkland-landscape-abstracts was invited to install art in a Beautiful Bob Zachery designed contemporary house in Las Campanas, just outside of Santa Fe. The home was recently featured in the Hacienda: Parade of Homes.
One of the paintings Karla selected to install was my cloud painting titled On My Way Home oil on canvas 50X72.
I was delighted to find out that the homeowners fell in love with the painting and decided to make a purchase.
This series of cloud paintings is inspired by my first trip out West! Having grown up in the south surrounded by thickets of woods and dense undergrowth I was amazed when on a camping trip with my family we crossed into west Texas and New Mexico. I could see the sky all around me and storms miles away moving across the landscape. It felt so immense and free. I have tried to convey that feeling in many paintings over the years.
