Rain has been the order of the day lately. Going for walks is a joy, the greening of the landscape is well on its way and the aroma of the poplars in bud can be intoxicating in a very good way. Kinda hard painting pastels outside in the rain so I painted this from my window in the studio, something I've done quite a bit of. I witnessed a funny event while painting, a Raven and a Magpie were getting into it over something and the next thing I see is the Raven flying off with a large cinnamon bun in its beak! He handled it quite easily and after stashing it somewhere was back in five minutes to scrounge for another one. Love those birds and their choice of snacks.
