Air Currents

Air currents have brought in some welcome relief with glowing sunshine.  Snow is melting, but now the winds change again bringing in the colder air currents again.  Nothing last forever....

This painting found its name tonight and got posted on flickr.  It is blowing into itself.  I've been working on it for a couple of weeks...off and on.  Maybe it really is nearing finish.  20x24, oil on canvas

It started strong and didn't really change much on its form or colors, but the air currents within it blew.

 first day drawing
 more color and form in paint
wax added, shifting the weight a bit

Then the final day of fine tuning.  What do you think?  How are the air currents your way?
