We were staying in the Lighthouse cabin at Palo Duro Canyon in the Texas Panhandle, and I wanted to paint on location! The wind was strong, but I was determined. I did manage to paint most of the scene en plein air, adding touch-ups later.
It was a great experience. On the first night, we heard thunder, rain, and wind. I opened the door and peered out. There was no rain, no thunder, and no lightning, but much wind, bounding down the canyon and whipping around the rock cabin. I went back to sleep, to the sound of pounding--wind!
On the second day, I found a small snake in the living area of the cabin. It had been hiding under my shoe. We managed to see him safely out of the building.
