It was blowing sideways while I painted this at Elkhorn Slough! I tried to exaggerate the size of the sky and make it dominant against the land. Unlike my painting partners, I had found an area that wasn't quite as windy as where they were in a parking lot. I also didn't have to deal with a buffeting easel... I sat on a little stool and painted this out of my cigar box pochade. It is 8 x 8.
