I had been painting out at the Nygren Preserves a few years ago. In between and even as I painted, I occasionally took a brief to photograph subjects of interest.

Shuffling through my collection of photos, I came across a rather boring scene under an overcast sky. Not very interesting but something about the design caught my attention. It took a few weeks, but then it occurred to me that a more dramatic sky could make the difference. It worked in a small 14″x 11″ format and worked out well in the larger 30″ x 24″ format.
