Rhododendron in the Wind

I woke up to blustery winds this morning - wind gusts 45 to 55 mph. I looked out the window. Everything was in motion and I wondered "How do you capture motion in a painting"? I spent the rest of the day researching it and doing studies. In the back of my head I wanted to do something like Marcel Duchamp's "Nude Descending a Staircase". I also wanted to capture the emotion of a March storm in Oregon.
