Storm Coming In

Storm Coming In
Oil on canvas, 10x10

We spent the weekend in Virginia, where it rained and rained, and when it wasn't raining, threatened rain.

And I loved every minute!

The rain released me from any sense of duty, and being without phone or internet added to the liberation. I read, I gazed into the middle distance, I painted, I walked, and one morning, I slept until 6:20! (For me, that's like most people sleeping until 2 p.m. Where did the day GO?)

I painted three of these 10x10s, sheltering in the van when the rain was too much. I love the rhythm of the clouds marching in over the marsh, and the quiet of the gray sky and gray water.
