This little painting was done from a photo taken last summer during wonderful warm weather with normal light warm winds blowing.
All winter long I have been looking forward to spring and summer and plein air painting. Nature seems to have other plans. Yesterday we had something in the gorge that in these parts is labeled "epic". The wind has been building all week and then yesterday really let loose with 60+ wind gusts. I do enjoy weather, really rough weather, and watched with awe these powerful forces at work. However, having said that, I am getting a little bit tired of rough weather and again, looking forward to warm, balmy winds and the gentle lapping of water at my feet.
