Afternoon Horizon - landscape of billowing clouds & hillside

Afternoon Horizon  7"x 6"     oil
Today's painting is one of those sunny afternoons looking up toward a spring hillside. It's always interesting that a painting can come out of the most everyday kinds of views. Here, I focused on the billowy clouds and edge of land. And, using values, my intention is to guide the view up through to the sky.

Your intention is a perfect success , your eyes just glide up towards the sky, and as you put it, incredible how you can make a simple landscape look so good !
