Drawing on Tuesday

This morning I arrived at a wonderful place to paint, just as the wind picked up and the dark clouds moved in.  So I moved on.  Later in the day I did this drawing while walking up Luce Road above the farm.  I will try again tomorrow morning early, since there are showers moving in later in the day.   The great painter Charles Sovek said that painting wasn't a performance sport, and I agree with him.  But the other day when the wind blew my painting into my palette, I decided to let chance have some say in the outcome.  You wouldn't see it, unless I pointed it out.  I did some scraping and wiping (and whining), which sounds like the behavior of a bad dog.
