This oil painting, which was painted at the 2012 retreat in Shellmouth, is titled "After the Rain". I don't think the photo does it real justice as the paint texture is quite pronounced in places. It was inspired by one of my many walks in and around the community of Manitou Beach. I had quite a bit of fun with it and think that it expresses my sentiments on that particular day. Close friends commented that they saw elements of the late Austrian painter Gustav Klimt. Your comments are always welcome.
