Giants of the Great Plains

Oklahoma skyscraper watercolor, 15 by 22, 300 pound d'Arches paper
You can't live on the Great Plains and not notice the skies, and fall in love with their many moods, colors and changes.
The new issue of Oklahoma Today carried a 10-page section, "Storm Watch," carrying 13 photos from three photographers, plus the cover photo. The double page spread photo by Mark W. Nault, of this thunderhead near Okarche, caught my imagination. First watercolor in too long.
