Everyday I take my dog Olive for a walk and recently started to take pictures of the clouds. A plus of living on the Plains are the wide open skies. When you take notice of the clouds, you realize how cool they are— wispy, fat and fluffy, gloomy. The colors are also amazing, bright oranges and purples at sunset, lush blue skies during the day. As a designer I love creating patterns and layering textures. I recently watched an episode of Bob Ross’s The Joy of Painting and have been picking out the happiest little cloud when I walk.
