IF = Breezy























I was originally thinking of an analogous color scheme, blue to green, but somehow purple ended up in there, and I wanted a punch of color too by adding some bright red.

Upon reflection, it is appropriate, as a weather themed painting. It is quite similar to the unpredictable weather patterns we experience here in St. Louis. For example, yesterday the high was 60 and we had thunderstorms in the evening. Today it's around 25 and we're expecting snow.

I see St. Louis weather in this painting. Is it winter with the cool blues and whites of the sky? Is that spring blowing in and the trees ready to leaf? Who knows...

I agree - very St. Louis-y! We lived there for 7 years and our sons were born there. But Colorado weather is pretty unpredictable right now, too!
Lovely image.

It done snowed here. I think it's interesting that a lot of autumn pictures have showed up for this week's theme.

I really like the colors here--and the solidity of the figure, and the whole composition.

I like this color scheme. It's transparent almost, like water or air. Takes on the form of whatever you're thinking.
