In this bruised and brooding sky painting, the large cloud edged with pure gold stretching towards the sun attracts our gaze.

We may then notice the discreet craft. Dwarfed by the cloud, it flies in the same direction…

And then, our eye moves down towards the heart of the cloud that slowly changes colour from its flamboyant edge in gold to orange and pink. A calmer light blue follows and shifts to a deeper lavender and purple.

Icarus III is a small painting full of emotion. It captures the high drama and subtle nuances of light and dark in the fleeting life of a cloud.
