"If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them."
Henry David Thoreau
It looks like putting in "foundations" is the next order of business. In the dark area at the very bottom I'm imagining an imaginary path leading down imaginary steps to an imaginary beach.
While waiting for all of that to appear, below are close up views at the cloud detail and the layers of color.

For the exhibition the paintings hung in the Old Courthouse, afterward traveling to the Coutts Museum before returning home.
All of the paintings in this exhibition depict one of our nation's 390 areas supervised by the National Park Service. Rapidly Changing Conditions and Vent are portrayals of Hawaii's Volcanoes National Park, and Maine: Tides, Rocks represents Acadia National Park.
All three paintings returned unscathed, safe and secure, each in it's individual strong box and in probably the most pristine condition I've ever received work back in, no doubt owing to the expertise and professionaliam of the National Park and the Museum staff.
