Stormy Weather

Stormy Weather, 6 x 8

Rain and cold have been the norm around these parts for the last few weeks. We have had to cancel several outdoor painting excursions due to what the weatherman calls a "wintery mix". Yes, we are wimps for complaining at all, but today the sun finally came out and it was quite wonderful. AND we have water in the lakes again - so good!

I also want to thank Julie Davis and Roisin O'Farrell for giving me the Sunshine Award for positive and creative blogging. Thank you both so much, I am very happy to receive this!

a lovely gray day

A simple, moody scene but so well painted. Echoes of that foreground yellow ochre around the whole image despite the fact it could be described as a "gray" painting. Fantastic command of foliage. That is a a real challenge which you seem to have mastered.

Hi Laurel,

You certainly deserve the award. It's nice to have some sunshine in the middle of all that rain. Beautiful atmospheric painting.

You can really feel the atmosphere in this painting. I love it! I too like the yellow foreground juxtaposed against the blue. I always feel like my paintings with grey skies seem so dimensionless. This has such depth. I feel the need to curl up with a cup of tea and a good book!
