Day 12 of the 30 Paintings in 30 days Challenge

Energy is the name of this new series.  I thought I would start with some quotes about energy from different perspectives.
Energy Part I by April M Rimpo

UNIVERSE - John Muir, "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.”
PHILOSOPHY - Aristotle, "The energy of the mind is the essence of life.” 
ART -  Sir Kenneth Clark, "Energy is eternal delight; and from the earliest times human beings have tried to imprison it in some durable hieroglyphic. It is perhaps the first of all the subjects of art."
HEALTH - Ilchi Lee, "The energy of life entering and leaving your body flows evenly throughout the universe. With that current, the mind of the cosmos communicates with all things.” 
It always fun for me to look at my paintings with fresh eyes ignoring my original intent.  I find I can do this when looking at a photograph of the painting, but not when looking at the original.  Maybe this is like looking at a painting in the mirror; it helps me separate myself and be more objective.  In Energy Part I I see stormy clouds over a landscape of receding mountains. I guess the UNIVERSE quote fits best with what I am seeing. What do you see?
