"Atmospheric Winds" by Karla Nolan, palette knife miniature oil painting on panel

A sweet little abstract painting here -- with a short explanation!  Years ago I worked at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulderl, Colorado.  The atmospheric scientists there tended to hang out on occasion in the "map room" where odometers and other graphs reigned supreme.  They were completely taken with the climate, meteorology, atmosphere -- every once in a while a great Chinook wind would pound Boulder, often with wind gusts over 100 mph!  Mama Nature ruled, man!  This is an ode to that era of my life.

By the way:  you may know by now that I've applied new pricing to my oil paintings, as most are not in galleries.  This one is for sale at $36 which includes s/h in North America. It's a 4"x6" miniature palette knife painting on linen panel.  Just write me, I'll send you a Paypal invoice, and we'll got from there -- or feel free to write me at for more information.  Thanks so much for looking!

I have also set up a second website,, to showcase my paintings on glass.  There is a piece in progress as I type with sailboats.  That's a true challenge, showing proper structure and making the water look good.  Be sure to check it out, along with my new blogspot, listed below.

Thanks for looking!
