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’ve been sick this last week. Some respitory thing, which is annoying, but more annoying is how tired I’ve been. Like go to bed at 9pm tired. And I wake up tired. And I’m tired in the middle of the day so I need a nap tired.
But I think I’m finally getting better and have been trying to speed along my recovery.
Yesterday I worked out for 16 min on my wii fit. Today I tried to drink a lot of water. Right now I’m eating a salad for dinner.
When I’m not feeling well I crave heavy, bloating foods, you know, comfort food. Pizza, meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and lots of it, forget normal portions. After the enormous lunch I ate, I figured a salad was on the menu.
I have to say, I am not enjoying it very much. Hopefully my body will appreciate all the extra nutrients and not having to digest a bunch of red meat and repay me by giving me a little burst of energy.
This painting was a bright spot in my day yesterday.
