East From Wagon Box

I painted this little 8x6 on a very, very windy day at Wagon Box Ranch, WY. I was with my friend, Jeanne Mackenzie, backed up against a barn door to keep from being blown away. Still, Jeanne's easel blew down and we both had plenty of Wyoming dirt and straw on our paintings: landscape on our landscapes!
The clouds were dramatically marching over us with their black bottoms and white tops. I picked them over all the beauty of the ranch, which was not such an easy choice.
As I look at this digitized version of the painting, I'm thinking that I may make some late-date changes to it. If I do, I'll post the results.
