Moving Through

Moving Through   9x9"  oil
Here I wanted to catch one of those fast moving storms that races overhead. You're not sure whether to go about your business, or duck for cover! I like the cool and warm contrasts, with the intensity of color changing throughout. We actually had snow on the ground this morning...but I just couldn't paint snow just now! This afternoon it cleared up, with the intermittent darkness you see here.
