Rainy Early

"Rainy Early"---8 x 10 oil on linen___available in Gadsden for a reserve price of $200 or so
If you watch the Weather Channel (my favorite...and ESPN), you see the rain stretches across the South...I made it home from Alabama this morning and dodged the storms, even though that big one hit Dallas about an hour after my flight to Austin...whew!!!!...but yesterday morning I painted in a DRIVING RAINSTORM in Gadsden, Alabama, on a cozy porch downtown...Help the museum, if you can...buy some of this art for a steal!
Come to my June workshop and paint with me! Kevin from Gadsden will be there, and 6 or 7 other folks, so far! Sign up soon, because I keep the classes small, and we almost have enough!...HAPPY SUNDAY!

I've always avoided painting in rainy weather, much less when it's actually raining. However, this painting has made me rethink the whole "can't paint because it's rainy" thought processes. Thank you so much for that!

Hi, Virginia, this is another of your lovely paintings! I, too, especially like how you handled the wet pavement, reflections, and the moodiness of a rainy day- captured perfectly!

Keep 'em coming!
