Rainy Day Ride Home

Rainy Day Ride Home

As I drove home in the rain and gray yesterday, I could spot such wonderful spring color - chartruse, maroon, pinks and white of dogwoods ... but I had no where to stop to take a photo. So, being really careful, I aimed my camera out the dashboard as we slowly snaked our way up the long roads north.

This house and gnarled tree reside about 15 miles from my house .. I was able to snap a photo since I was stopped at a light ...

Reviewing my 'moving photos' there are lots of color references, but not much more ... oh well ... lol

Catch up day for chores and errands through a day of more rain.. I hope to get these completed to find some relaxing time to paint. It's been such an intense week!

Hope your Friday is a good one!

I love this landscape. *sigh, landscapes seem to be such a challenge for me. I think it must be raining most places, huh?

Another lovely landscape -- love the soft tree interposed with the "skeleton" tree! Well, the "fuzzy" photos would be great inspiration for impressionist paintings!!! You amaze me.

You're so good at selecting subject matter... it all looks picturesque when you paint it!
