THREATENING RAIN By Cecelia Lyden


oil/board
11x14



When Julie Riker and I started out to paint Tuesday afternoon, the weather was warm and balmy. We changed our original location from the Marysville side of the river to the Fort Hunter side.By the time we travelled to the other side of the River and found a nice view of the Rockville Bridge, the weather had changed from warm and balmy to overcast, with rain threatening. Luckily it remained balmy and was such a pleasure to sit there, watching and painting the rapidly changing sky.However, our paintout was shortened, only painting for about an hour and a half. I finshed the painting at home.

I'm glad you found a warm day to paint, Cecilia. You sure made the most of the drama of a change in the weather! Quite a painting!

Thank you, Claire, Larry and Dianne. Maybe because it had been a while since my last plein air venture, but I thoroughly enjoyed painting out--watching the sky change and the trains rolling across the bridge-threatening weather and all.
