Sky Rockets in Flight

I seem to be on a celestial bent. I have absolutely no idea why. It's just one of those things where I choose colors and let the paint brush go where it will. LOL! I think I have just developed my very first series, quite accidentally. "Sky Rockets in Flight" is the fifth in an accidental series of abstract paintings. The others are "Kootenai Sunset", "Cosmic Sunrise", "Spirit Sky" and "The Source".

Sky Rockets in Flight
The name Sky Rockets in Flight just popped into my head along with the tune to Sky Rockets in Flight Afternoon Delight. My fellow seniors may recall the 1976 Starland Vocal Band song by that title.

Here are the five pieces in the series. Oh yippee I have a series!

Celestial Series

I have no idea if there will be others in this series. It will just depend on how the celestial winds blow.

If you've never tired your hand at painting you really should. You most likely will surprise yourself like I did.  It's just a colossal joy to watching your creation being born. And, an even more colossal joy to look at it on the wall whilst thinking, "I made that".  And, painting is so much easier than photography.

  1. This is really a beautiful piece. There is something about it that I feel peace and motion at the same time.

  2. Glad you like it! Do you remember the song with those lyrics? Sky rockets in Flight Afternoon delight!

  3. Yes I do. It has been playing around in my mind since then. LOL. Thanks. Maybe I can repay you by letting you know that the Pinball Wizard has also been coming to my mind.
