Drama 6"x6" oil

Last year our area was slammed by hurricane Irene.  We were concerned that Sandy would get us also, but there was little damage here, however we got some spectacular weather in the form of fast moving clouds, changing skies, and ominously beautiful rainbows in the north that were long lasting and HUGE.  This painting is a DPW challenge that really emphasizes the drama of the sky.  I have been doing value studies lately and tried doing that with this painting, using limited colors, but I just had to cut loose and go with the brilliance of the yellows and oranges against the blue background.
