Ice Break, Oil on linen, 12x16
It was up in the 40s this weekend and sunny making for a 3 painting weekend. Around three o'clock on Saturday the sun popped out so I finished up a studio "memory" painting I was working on and had Jerri Jo drop me off on the Robert Street Bridge just as the colors were beginning to peak. It felt good to work fast. I covered the canvas in a little over an hour. Sometimes it just feels right.

I can't tell you how many times I've commuted over the Robert Street Bridge and wanted to paint this painting. By shear luck the light was absolutely perfect when I finally did. I was more than willing to put up with some pretty inane questions by passersby.
