We have seen skies like his in nature."Famous landscape artist Don Hornberger is best known for his distinctive and recognizable skies, Hornberger was able to manipulate acrylics and water on unusual surfaces— although he painted on canvas, slate and masonite, Hornberger believed his finest works were the skies he created on the reverse side of mylar, a technique he originated and mastered over many years.
