Whose sky are you under?

This is my first post. I am reluctant to enter a new relationship on the rebound from Long to belong: landscape memoir, a 3 year focus in the academic lexicon, a studio based PhD at the University of Newcastle....however, this morning the sky is laden with orange dust, nature imitating art- on a personal level, that is. It is apocalyptic, post-safe blue and green world. One of the paintings currently on exhibition at the university gallery, She-oaks, (pictured above) has the same strange glow, more sunset inspired than end-of-the-world, but the sister work, Whose sky are you under, asks you to wonder....
