I never think of these paintings as necessarily finished works of art. Rather they are the opportunity to study interesting challenges. Sort of impressionist sketches in real time.
I think that this one works in a moody sort of way.
Wouldn't it be great if we had sublime subjects such as the Archway Rocks everyday? The simple fact is we don't and can't, but we can prepare ourselves for those special moments by making the best of what is available.
At least, that is what I keep telling myself while I'm standing plein air painting in the rain...
