A shift from the immenseness of the West, but still an aspiration for open sky. Living in Essex County, NJ, not far from Newark - we are densely populated and in a community with a vast number of old trees at the base of South Mountain - a preserved forest. There are only a few spots in West Orange where you can take in the vast open sky - my kids' elementary school being one of them. I'm always drawn to the sunsets and sunrises, cloud patterns and colors I get to take in once there. It's as if the sky just suddenly opens up. This piece is continuing in the vein of abstraction, focusing on the colors and organic structure in the clouds, contrasted by the sharp edges of the school.
