One of those days when you wonder if the sky will ever brighten up? Blue skies on their way, but you sort of have to look for them. But even with the overcast sky, I did manage to find some cast shadow and light. I created this piece on one of my Sunday outings with friends, last year.
I look at this spot often, find it interesting, and will probably try it again. I hope!
I am not the only one who finds this spot fascinating and very paintable. There is often someone with an easel nearby... maybe its the energy of the other artists that draws me here.
