Typically, steady cold rain makes me head for the coffee shop, but because Michael Lindstrom (who paints in the rain a lot) invited me to Burnt Bridge Creek today, I decided to throw in with him and brave the elements. Painting in the rain is a challenge. There is a distinct "repelling" sensation as the paint is put down, but I wound up liking the experience. Burnt Bridge Creek is a super pretty place and I thoroughly enjoyed the day! I may use this as a color study for another painting.
