Thermal Cliff

According to the news the other night Arizona was facing a "thermal cliff" with a cold front that is now upon us, but at the time about to blow in.  My studio is rather chilly this evening, but "thermal cliff" is a bit of an exaggeration.

Work continues on "Evening Post".  I have a feeling that I need to increase the lights and darks.  In the original almost everything is cast in the building on the right's shadow.  Sometimes reality doesn't make an interesting painting, so I need to use some artistic license to spice things up.  It's always a question of how far to go.  Maybe the weatherpersons we just using artistic license when reporting the weather earlier this week to spice things up a little.
