A Painter Looks at Clouds

all of these pictures were taken in the span of 15-20 minutes in the early morning looking at various segments of the sky. It is the appearance of painterliness that interests me.

    Hi Ed,
    My Google Search picked up the mention of Howard Mehring on your blog here. And it is fun for me to find a fellow DC artist from those days.

    I showed up in DC in ’61, and I went to AU. Ben Summerford, D’Arista, and Gates were my teachers. I left with an MFA ten years later… after many adventures. Alice Denny and Jack Rasmussen bought small paintings from me when I had a show at the WPA.

    I raised a family in Columbia, and then went off to Jamaica, where I painted for years (Walter Gomez had my paintings). I ended up taking photos of the sky. I still take photos but I have returned to my abstract roots (http://f0rtylegz.deviantart.com/).

    I’m a little embarrassed to write all this in ‘comments’, but I couldn’t find an email for you. I hope you don’t mind?

    Funny I see Alan Shields to the right of this box. I met him too, and visited his studio with New York friends. Very influenced by American Indians. And Stockwell! Memories.

    Anyway… nice blog. Love to hear from you.
    Mike
