We had a snowstorm last night followed by rain this morning. It was gray and overcast till the sun broke through late this afternoon. I saw the storm clouds breaking up and racing away. I went up to the fields behind the library and set up my easel just as the sun was setting. It was crazy. The clouds were rolling by in big pieces constantly changing form. The light was changing. The cloud shapes were tearing apart. The colors were barely one identifiable color before they changed to another. I painted fast. It was gorgeous. By the time it was late dusk only a few thin strands of clouds were left in a mostly clear sky. The stars were coming out as i packed up.
