Love the quote and I so agree. You've captured rain beautifully. Reminds me of looking out a car window!

I love to see your paintings done in rain. I really don't know how to paint such a scene because normally we have an absolutely blue sky with no clouds and sunshine all day. So I focus on sunlight and shadows. But I love this painting so much I am inspired to learn how this is done. Thank you so much Celeste!

Oh my, this painting is a doozy, Celeste! I'll make sure Michael sees it too, since gray is his thing. Also, thanks for the lovely quote - very appropriate for those of us living in the Pacific Northwest!

Dynamite painting Celeste! What great mood you have captured. Is it too soon to say you've switched to the dark side?.....:) Thanks for sharing!

Looking at the painting is like driving in the rain. You somehow captured it. The overwhelming grey atmosphere and the rain drops rolling down the windshield. And that feeling of being soaked through. Love it!
