I wish our sky looked like this right now! I'm so tired of the heat and humidity. I shouldn't complain because it's fairly rare weather for our area but we've been dealing with it for well over a month and I would like some nice cool rain.
I know the majority of the country has been dealing with heat and humidity for the entire summer and I'm sounding like a real sissy but I'm used to our usual mild and dry summers. I thought that painting something that looked cool and wet would make me feel better and maybe act as a suggestion for some cooler weather - an artistic rain dance. After all, it is Fall now. We probably won't get any rain for at least a month or two but I can dream, can't I?
This is an oil painting on a small stretched canvas. I did an under painting of red and after it was dry I used a very limited palette of muted colors, letting pieces of the red show through.
