sunrise from the parking garage

6x6 pastel study
Skies are fascinating, aren't they? I was parked on the top of a mall parking garage waiting for the sunrise. It came with these glorious little clouds. Within about ten minutes the sky was covered with the fast moving clouds. The weather man called it "a maritime cloud."  Another good reason for all my constant memory works..I was able to draw on the image saturating my brain..
I leave you now with a new quote. Just before the master painter Claude-Baptiste-Camille Corot died he said,  
"I go on hoping that there will be painting in heaven." 

Now there is a man I understand!

Looks like you're already in heaven, judging from this little painting.
