A Painting in One Night

Last Friday night I found myself with nothing to do and an abundance of energy. I looked around for a painting to paint over and found "It's About the Clouds", which was a fine plein air attempt but nothing special.  Also, being only 12x12, I thought I could take this on in one sitting. Below is the metamorphosis. I worked looking at a photo from the Dunes State Park. I was very warmed up from working on "Three Pines" all day and this little landscape just about leaped off my brush! I started around 9 and was cleaned up and in bed by midnight.
