"Majesty" in Canadian Brushstroke Magazine

I just found out that one of my landscape paintings, "Majesty," is on the short-list of finalists in Canadian Brushstroke Magazine and it will be featured in the next issue, when it is released in the second week of September!

They asked me to write a little bit about my inspiration for it, and here's what I wrote:

The light blasting through the clouds is what really caught my attention. The softness of the trees in the distance, and the movement of the water seemed to compliment it so well. I titled it Majesty because of the way that skies like this can hold us in awe of their magnificence.

Your landscapes are as lovely as your portraiture - it must've been as interesting to get those clouds just right as it is to find the right flesh tones for a sitting. The trees are nicely suggested, as well - you've got my vote.
