This piece began as a challenge to myself, to paint quickly with a limit of 30 minutes and then to stop. I was trying to work on getting the mood right, readying myself for the coming plein air outings, whenever warmth might return to our part of the world. I did go back in the next day and redefine some things, but I tried to touch very little of the original, because it really does have a feeling of being out there in it.
