Beautiful day to paint today!

did this one right at the end of the day after working on an 18x24 that i didnt quite finish this morning. hopefully i'll finish it in the next day or two and post it.
what i'm working on in this one is only four/five values and a very unified look even tho' the scene is extremely complicated. i know that if i work on these difficult ones with perseverance then my painting will surely get better. thats my hope anyway.
come to think of it... like the title of this painting...... this painting career of mine is a Widow Maker too! ask my wife!
