New oil painting "Fire in the Sky"

Fire in the Sky
Mark Nesmith
Oil on canvas
24" x 20"
2015
I've stared at these two oaks outside my classroom all year thinking I should paint them. One day I watched the sun fight through the dark clouds of a dying storm. It was like a burst of fire in the sky. I've held that image in my mind and yesterday after school I started laying in the beginnings of this painting.  

I haven't decided if this is finished or not yet, but nothing is yelling at me when I look at it so I'm leaving it alone for now.
