skywatch friday: sky journal

Ken Leslie painted his piece of Vermont sky over and over.
This is a section of the installation of the resulting "Sky Journal" at the Bennington Museum.

Original, but a bit too strange for me. You have found an interesting and curious way to skywatch today.

A good idea for SWF contributors.

It makes me remember of a character , in a Paul Auster's book I think: every day, he takes a picture of the same place at the same hour.After one year, the result is quite interesting and surprising.
I like this kind of artistic glance on the world..

I love this--love that you can stand back and see the transformation of the sky in all its guises; that you can see the sunny days interspersed among cloudy ones; that you can see the different shades of 'sunny' and 'cloudy'; and that someone thought to capture these marvels in this way!

I felt precisely the same way about this, SC. Thanks for putting so eloquently.

An absolutely fabulous sky watch friday! We have a local artist, Karen Bjork Dischell, doing something similar with trees. Gotta be something very Zen about this process!

Sweet. This is the fulfillment of a dream I had about 40 years ago. I wanted to paint the sky each day for a year. After buying some smaller canvas panels, I started out with some enthusiasm but that waned with the smell of turpentine and linseed oil--a nuisance in my nose. I hope this artist gets some meaningful recognition for his work.
