Foley Farm in Winter

The approaching cirrostratus was low on the western horizon. There was a gentle easterly breeze that was characteristic of the cold conveyor belt being drawn into the approaching low pressure area. Another winter storm was on the way to add to the deep snow already in the fields.
This painting is on a small basswood plank which had almost no tooth. It is another SSS - small slippery surface painting and I had fun. The piece of basswood is one I had saved for many years - I had obtained the wood from my friend Jack of Schomberg - probably around 1990. It is only 3.75 x 5.12 inches. I scratched my name in the thick wet paint with a toothpick. I like to keep my signature subtle.
