Rainy Day Painting and Reading

Yesterday it rained for 10 consecutive hours. No walking all day. We stayed inside reading, drawing, and painting. Here’s a painting I did. It’s a composite of the pier posts in our backyard and the view across the bay. Those posts called to me that they needed to be drawn and painted.

We started today with sunshine, but by the time we returned from our walk the clouds had moved in. It will be touch and go the rest of today, sunny tomorrow, and then clouds and rain the rest of the week. That’s summer in the Pacific northwest.



About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.

    Very nice painting. So, I see that even rainy days can be great days as well.
    By contrast we are had a wonderfully sunny day here in Paris, but I still had things to do inside so I did not go out. I am really working hard on my Japanese lessons. Keep the good art work while you are still travelling, and do enjoy.
