I’ve always been fascinated with the sky and clouds. For a long time, I’ve wanted to do a painting featuring cloud formations. I never got around to it because I couldn’t think of anything to paint below the sky. The small format of daily paintings seemed suitable though so I was finally able to convince myself to paint one even without anything else beneath.

I originally wanted to paint just clouds, but a couple of airplanes flew by and I decided to include one. I didn’t notice it before but I think I broke a rule by placing it in the center of the composition.
