My friend Larry invited some painting friends out to his place last evening to paint his field of Queen Ann's Lace. I
like the idea of an evening paint out - cooler temperatures and warmer
sunlight. I knew the light at 6 PM would change quickly, so I just
worked on this very small panel and tried to not get too detailed. I was hoping for some orange tones
in the sky as the sun started to set, but instead the sky turned almost
black with a threatening storm. Fortunately I was able to finish my
painting, pack up, and start home before the rain hit and I saw the dark
cloud following me home in my rear view mirror.
