Sometimes we get so obsessed by the clouds that we forget about the blue sky altogether...but it's still there, the blue sky. It's easy to forget that what we're looking for is already here.. - Andy Puddicombe
The Blue Skies pieces are a visual metaphor for the idea that there’s always peace and serenity somewhere above the chaos and struggles of daily life. That peace can be ours simply by remembering to look for it. In the Blue Skies pieces, layers of paint and pastel combine with gestural marks made with graphite, markers, and crayons. Areas of chaotic activity contrast with quiet space. Yet there is integration of the active with the quiet areas: the earliest layers of marks remain visible though veiled beneath laterlayers of paint.
