A Split Second of Divinity
6X8, Oil on Panel
This a plein air from near Waco, Texas done just before the end of 2016. If you've ever tried to do a sunrise or sunset in plein air, you know how hard they are, how quickly the sky changes it's character and intensity. The entire palette can shift on you in a minute or so, going from vibrant yellows to reds and pinks. So it is a tall order to think that I might have finished this one as is on-site. It had some pretty extensive studio work done and is therefore my first completed piece in 2017!
