The reason I chose the title for this piece it looks like the layer of our atmosphere whee weather happens, which is the troposphere. It's the lowest layer of earth's atmosphere. I created this piece when I lived in Minnesota, where I spent a lot of time looking at various weather patterns. My inspiration in creating this piece is nature and the environment, and my interest in climate science. I use acrylic paint mixed with acrylic mediums to produce the unusual atmospheric effects in this painting. It is painted on panel, and framed.

Many years ago in the frozen north (Minnesota) I was a talented child drawer. That led to a love of painting that I have had all of my life. I received a degree in illustration while in high school. Later I studied fine arts painting at a MN university and have been painting ever since. I paint mostly in acrylic and watercolors but I also do occasional oil paintings. I do portraits, landscapes, and abstracts, and occasional series like wildlife on abstract backgrounds. I'm very interested in environmental causes and often do paintings about those themes. I sometimes work in a series but ultimately paint what inspires me. Originally from MN, I have also lived in San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland, North Dakota, and northern Minnesota. I don't really love to move, but I love to travel, especially to central America. Sometimes I interpret my travel photos later as paintings. I now live in the Atlanta Georgia area with my husband and cute dog. My studio is in my home so I can paint at 3:00 am if I want to, and yes, that happens. I'm a night owl painter, because that's often when the magic happens.
