This is a "waste not want not" story with a vengeance. An unknown artist at the League threw out a painting. After watching it next to the garbage bin for a couple of hours, I grabbed it. Waste not want not (my mother would have been so proud).
After gessoing over the previous artist's work (it really was pretty terrible, so I understood why it had been tossed), this is what somehow developed. I didn't have anything particular in mind, just the colors I wanted to use. Since I was working on gessoed canvas, not my preferred raw canvas, I dug out the bristle brushes and started putting in the sky, then the rough water (rocks) and the wind. Now, it reminds me of the white water rafting I used to do long ago. Fun and scary. I miss that carefree adrenalin rush.
