Town of Gay Water Tower 010

I painted this piece a few weeks back. It was one of my first attempts at a smaller square piece. It was done from a photo, the day I took the picture it was freezing and strangely windy. Not ideal for plein air. I was drawn to the similarity between the values in the tower and the passing clouds. If I paint from a photo, I love to do them upside down. This was one of them. A friend of mine who is a longtime resident of Gay informed my that before the lettering you see now, it actually read "TOWNOFGAY". Wish I had known that before I painted it.
