'Winter Gale'

*Happy New Year Everyone!*

I painted this piece from the protection of the
cab of my truck yesterday, using my homemade
lap box that I put together with this in mind.
 It was blowin' 35 kmh gusting to 50
and the wind surfers were in their glory!
Rain squalls, then sunshine with rainbows then
back again all within minutes so paint fast
boyo! It was cold in the truck and the gust
buffeting my rolling studio made a steady hand
an illusion at best.
If this truck is rockin' don't... =:-/
Oil on wood panel 6 x 8.
Your thoughts & comments are valued.

The view from my studio window this morning.
More weather on the way...

How fabulous! You again have captured the landscape and wild moment. I particularly like the low clouds next to the mountains. Another wow, this is.

Have a happy new year celebration! All the best to you and yours!!

Happy New Year to you Jeffrey. What a brave spirit you are painting away in your cold truck while the wild winds blow! Once again you capture the spirit of the elements. The photo is dramatic too, hope you stay warm and snug during this cold weather.
