We’ve been getting some much needed rain here in the Bay Area. This impedes plein air painting just a bit. I managed to get out and paint a quick one this weekend before the heavy rains came in. It was a cold day and it even rained lightly a few times, but I didn’t mind. I really enjoy this change in the weather and the cloudy skies. Painting in the cold and rain seems to infuse the creative experience with a certain charge. I must get out there and do it more often. Like many others, I am hoping we are in for a long rainy season.
