An exuberance of clouds by various artists. Remember this is only a smattering of what's out there - it's impossible to include everything. But I think this is a nice representation.


  1. Yvette - what a fantastic collection of images. Inspiring. Cheers

  2. As always, a great cross-section, Yvette.

    I sometimes look at clouds and think that no one would believe they looked like that if someone painted them. . . It's interesting to see the literal and not-so interpretations!

  3. Clouds, especially storm clouds, always make me feel so insignificant. These are beautiful paintings. I like the Anne Packard painting. She's new to me.

  4. Hi, Yvette - I found myself clicking on each of these to see the enlarged versions. For some reason (and I'd love to know why) I'm especially drawn to the more contemporary images where the clouds are abstracted into solid volumes, like Hagege's. But I'd live happily with any of them . . .

  5. Thanks, Carole. Glad you enjoyed them.

  6. Thanks, Debbie. If I didn't know better I'd think clouds were invented by nature precisely to be interpreted by artists.

  7. Joan, Anne is new to me also. You can see more of her work at the following link. It looks as if the family owns its own gallery.

    Sorry I can't do live links in comments.

  8. I love them all, Mark. I too would be very happy with any of them. But again I would choose the Albert Bierstadt which remains one of my favorite paintings.

    Secondly, I'd choose one of the contemporaries too.

  9. Beautiful paintings to come to while searching around the Internet and landing here.

    All are lovely.

  10. I loved each and every cloud paintig! Now that i live in a "big sky" area in Colorado I love watching the clouds more than ever. I am actually looking forward to the thunderstorms of summer, as I know they will look spectacular here.
