Oh, I really like this one! Lots of atmosphere as your other commentator stated. Hope you got out of there before that weather kicked in!

Love the shuttered window in the piece below. Is that a stucco house? I am dying to see what it looks like inside!!

The "Milwaukie" threw me for a minute. I immediately thought Milwaukee as in WI. Sheesh. Can't take me anywhere. Look at those gorgeous skies! I love dark clouds, always bring me a sense of comfort and warmth. (Yes, I AM a weirdo but then I adored the weather in western WA.)

Since moving to sunny Florida, I actually miss the gloomy Novembers in Jersey. Very strange. :)

"Art is for everyone" Celeste

My daughter, Margaret, says the same thing and hates when people say they are "bad" at art.
