Me thinks that it is raining all over this great nation of ours, for some people it is a bit much for them to handle and my heart goes out to them. I wonder if our politicians are re-considering their position on global warming? Not. Anyways on a completely other topic, I happen to love what happens to trees after a rain in the spring, they take on the most amazing vibrant colours and it is a real challenge to capture that in paint. This painting is my humble attempt, I had the good fortune to be out with my paints the other day when I came across this scene not far from where I live. Hope you enjoy it!
