A Blue Sky
Spring is here or at least that's what the calender says. Wednesday March 20th was the official First Day of Spring. My house thermometer say it's 36 Degrees Fahrenheit . It sure does not feel like spring. At least the sky is blue. Oh how I missed those blue skies.

Romanticism, Landscape Art
John Constable looked at nature itself for inspiration, not art. Often sketching his landscapes in the open air. He was the first to do this with oil paint. " When I sit down to make a sketch from nature the first thing I try to do is to forget that I have ever seen a picture."-John Constable
Zirruswolken(Federwolkenstudio)(1821-22) by John Constable
The skies were a vital part of his landscape paintings.
