Oklahoma wind challenge, watercolor

"Hang on to your hat, it's Oklahoma" 5 by 6 watercolor, 140#lb card
Out here there's the wind. 
"Hang on to your hat, babe, it's Oklahoma"
Day 3 of the #Worldwatercolormonth challenge.
From a rough pencil sketch by my father 40 some years ago....an Oklahoma babe, holding on to your hat.
Thanks, Dad. Hope you like her, and notice the fine details like the red fingernails!
