Storm Coming Highrock

"Storm Coming Highrock", 12" x 12", Oil on Museum Board
Yesterday a storm actually did come to the Pacific Northwest and the power was out in our little community for nearly 24 hours--no TV, no internet, no electricity and even the phone service went down for awhile. So I built a fire in our fireplace insert, which will pretty much heat the entire house, worked on a painting under the skylight and read a novel in front of the fire.  This painting was done in response to a challenge on an artist network I belong to.

Purchase this unframed painting.
Contact me if you would like to purchase a plein air frame.


  1. There's a lot of energy in this painting. I love the colors. Really nice!!

  2. Hi Kathryn,
    Looks like the whole spectrum is there. It's beautiful.

  3. Beautifully done, Kathryn. I love the movement you've created and the sky color is gorgeous!

  4. Thank you all for your comments. As a group challenge, it was an interesting one to paint.
