After I finished Cloudburst (painting on right) I looked high up on the studio wall and saw her abandoned sister. While they were not made as a diptych, once the one on the left gets finished they will hang well together. I had painted the second version (left) when I was frustrated with the one on the right (now finished).
The one on the left has taken so much abuse that the linen has begun to sag on the right side. I will need to re-stretch it soon.
We received 14 inches of snow Wednesday night- a rarity for DC. The city has shut down, even bus service and above ground metro were halted.
