What Elephant?

So, this “flying saucer”  Lenticularis (cloud) is so scary!  Turns out they don’t hold water…all bark and no bite. Still, unpredictable and fast cloud action is deadly for painting.

Valerie calls this one “sun angel on Mount Hopkins”. I like it!

Better view here at “Elephant Head”.  Okay, so we are on the wrong side to see the “Elephant” which is probably better for us.

It heats up faster than expected (always)…and the clouds are totally gone now. Hard to believe we were running from them just a couple hours ago.

Valerie paints the great big rock on a little tiny canvas-muy clever!

This is where I ended up. Definitely a painting for the studio.
