So true Celeste, great quote, and you just flat out captured it. Lovely little piece.

Une vision totalement réaliste de ville sous la pluie... J'ai envie de me protéger d'elle en admirant votre peinture... Je sens presque l'humidité de l'atmosphère.
Gros bisous

So glad to see that you are still painting with the same excitement and enjoyment and still painting so well. I love this one so much.

I was thinking exactly as BoholstWife said. In fact, I was wishing that Michael's windshield was clean so that it would look this good! I love rainy days and this one looks fabulous!

Me encanta el ambiente que la lluvia le otorga al paisaje, en este caso melancolía pura...

Felicitaciones por tu pintura, Celeste.

Abrazos!

Magical. Silver shimmering wonder. This almost makes me want to leave sunny Miami and move there! Almost. ;)

I really like this one. Not just because I can relate to the rain like you. It just works.
