Rain is always welcome in the high desert ranch land of Far West Texas. On this afternoon, a rare winter thunderstorm built over the Davis Mountains, dropping the irregular patterns of light and shadow that make this country so interesting to paint.
In this pastel skyscape, several layers of warm color lie beneath this painting-- this "underpainting" shows through, giving depth and movement to the clouds and dimension to the grass and mountains.
