Catching The Moments -- Rain Ahead

Rain Ahead

Strange weather today, very wet, heavy rain, bright sunshine
after the rain, then thunder, hail and heavy rain again.  I
missed the last sequence because I was teaching in an interior
room, and had no idea so much drama was happening
in the city outside the college.  This painting on view now
at the Catch The Moments studio/gallery in Niagara Falls and
for the next month is all about driving into weather -- very wet rain.

I am a fan of rain as long as it's not a dangerous storm  --
maybe that's the Scottish part of my heritage.  Rain doesn't
bother me, but I do like to be prepared. I bought two umbrellas
in the past week, (and lost one). Umbrellas have been a necessity.

If you're in Niagara Falls this weekend check out the
incredible sculptures of Gabrielle Fischer Horvath,
Manny Martins' gorgeous photography, and my

Have an enjoying the weather day.
