We are waiting for the other shoe to drop. The weather lately in eastern Oregon has been unseasonably mild. It's hard to believe we're in the heart of January; daytime highs have been reaching into the 50's. I barbecued steaks outside this evening and didn't even wear a coat!
The source images for today's painting actually came from photos I took last winter, on a day when howling wind blew snow flurries horizontal to the ground and cattle huddled behind rows of windbreak willows. It can look pretty stark and austere around here in winter, but I love the subdued, graphic beauty of it all.
