FIrst Thermals

First Thermals___8x10 oil on linen panel___for Passing America: The Great Plains (click image for details!)
Early in the spring the air is often too cool and heavy for the buzzards to float as they like to do, but the day I painted this was warm. In fact, it was one of the very FIRST warm days of spring. The air was warm and light and the buzzards were enjoying their ride on the thermals!
I mentioned yesterday (or so) that I am a crazy person for the next couple of weeks, as my son prepares to graduate high school....CONGRATULATIONS Sam!

I must say, I've learned a lot I didn't know about the weather and about nature just reading your blog! Who would have guessed? Thanks for giving us these little "tidbits" as you create your treasures.

This one is really lovely. I love the soft colors--really has a spring look to it.
