Desert Clouds, Utah1940 by James Guilford Swinnerton
Jimmy Swinnerton painted in every kind of weather, the most dramatic being when dark-clouded thunderstorms loomed over the large buttes. In Desert Clouds, Utah, the vertically developed cumulus clouds, common in the West during hot summer months, seem to emerge audaciously from terra firma. In reality, cumulus clouds can hover as low as 300 feet above the desert landscape.
