|"Oklahoma Normal," 8 x 10 watercolor, 300 lb. d'Arches cold press paper|
Yesterday was almost summer, muggy, hot, barely a breathe of breeze.
But not today when a cool front swept across the state, with winds and gusts close to 50 miles per hour in central portions, hurricane strength in the panhandle, and about 30 mph in the southeast.
In the angst of pandemic where people are wondering about a "new normal," out here on the Great Plains, quickly changing weather and strong winds are "the normal," all the time.
Inspiration? Wind-whipped clouds, foliage and grasses. Sure. Oklahoma. Today's watercolor.
