This painting captures the illumination of clouds and summer showers over a dusky landscape. The light seems to vibrate in the sky, and the motion of the rain falling creates a wonderful dynamic to the piece. The brush strokes are loose and impressionistic, capturing the emotional quality of the light.

This painting was created on 1-1/2" canvas, with the painting continued around the edges. The piece arrives framed and ready to hang.
