Freight Train Clouds

January 16, 2013

   Tweaked a cloud painting this morning before I came into work. Several years ago I was on the road to New Mexico and came around the curve from Magdalena that drops into Socorro when a big summer storm churned up to my left and sent long feeder clouds up and over the highway. It was like a giant freight train moving in slo mo. As I passed underneath, I pulled over and tried to capture the scene in my sketchbook. This is my impression of that spectacular cloud show:
