Flowers in the Rain

Flowers in the Rain - oil on panel - 9x12
Holed up in the studio this afternoon listening to an audio book and attempting to paint the atmosphere of a rainy day. Oh rain would be so nice right about now! heh heh.  
I have simplified many of the shapes and reworked the background over and over until feeling satisfied with the overall neutrality of it. Kinda fun.  
Dave and I had a great game of crokinole this evening, and schlepped back a couple of martinis each!!! he beat the pants off me, he always does, but I never give up trying. Good fun on a snowy snowy Saturday evening.


  1. Beautiful Sally,

    It was a lovely day here -- snowy, but warm -- which seems a miracle after the freezing cold we've had. I've thought of your beautiful paintings all day.

    XOXOXOXOXO Barbara
