Stiff Trade Winds
Yo my friends ---This winter in Florida has been a tad chilly as well as windy. The wind gave me the idea for this painting. This is 10 x 20 done with a palette knife on heavy linen paper. I used bold sweeping strokes from the shoulder and arm almost fully extended. A great feeling of liberation in this style of painting.
The winds and the gusts can reach upwards to 30 - 60 mph coming in off the Gulf of Mexico as well as from the north. Seeing palm trees swaying and trunks bending is common place.
