8 x 10 Oil on Gessobord
It's Fall and it's freezing here at Smith Mountain Lake! The day started out calm and beautiful and then the wind kicked up, clouds rolled in and everything changed. It called out to be painted right then and there because everything changes minute by minute. What is so fascinating is how the color of the water becomes so dark when the whitecaps begin to appear. The sun was still off in the distance, but clouds overhead really changed the whole feeling of the day.
