5 x 7" Oil on Gessoboard
This is what it would have looked like yesterday at Poplar Forest if the weather had cooperated. They had a "Painting on the Lawn" event that began with sunlight, and pretty soon turned into a total washout. We got there just in time for the clouds to roll in and the temperature to drop about 20 degrees. We headed for the tour of the building hoping for the sun to return, however, it thundered and there was a lot of lightening, so we were sort of held captive on the tour until the lightening diminished. I kept thinking of "Hotel California".. "You can check out any time you'd like, but you can never leave." We were chilled to the bone! So...this is my ode to what would have been.
