I have the unfounded notion that days have moods – just like people. Some feel happy and light, while others are sleepy and slow. Winter days don’t really want to face the world – just snuggle and enjoy – while summer days have
boundless energy and the cheeriest disposition. (Like I said, completely unfounded, and ridiculous, and yet, you know exactly what I mean…)
This painting can’t seem to make up it’s mind and is in flux between gauzy summertime bliss and the occasional moody storm. And don’t get me wrong! I love simply beautiful days. They are just great. …but the days where you don’t quite know what to wear or how to pack, or whether or not you’ll need a coat or umbrella… those day’s are interesting. They’re evolving and moving. They’re lively and expressive and adventurously moody.
“Come Rain or Shine” depicts just such a day.
This painting is 16×20 inches, oil on canvas and will be available in my shop in ONE HOUR, at noon (EST), today!
This painting, and the two more to follow this week, are created to raise funds for my very unexpected & totally exciting trip to Salt Lake City to attend the Alt Summit! Read more about that adventure on the blog of my dear friend, MJ.
Check back tomorrow for Painting No. 3! There is also a lovely collection of originals & prints on sale in my studio shop. Check them out!
Love your artwork, but feel especially lucky to see close-ups on the blog! Thanks for sharing so much for those of us who don’t know anything about the art of painting!!!
I love showing the close-up details! In person, paintings have a way of drawing you in and making you want to interact with them. That’s so hard to capture through a computer, so showing the details (the parts textures and tones I delight it) is my answer to that problem. Thank you for your sweet words and for following along!

This actually made me think so much about the weather, something i had never done before. Very beautiful painting, definitely one of a kind and the explanation to go with it was amazing 🙂
Haha! I’m glad you so I appreciate my random weather-theories and my painting! 😉
I just love the colors in this painting.
