"City Squall" oil on canvas

Been having trouble with my photo downloading program so I don't have the pictures of the plein air painting trip I took with my son Maury this weekend......I am posting this painting I did in the studio today. Think I achieved the looseness in brushstroke I was trying to get.
A typical scene in Seattle on a typical rainy day!....

12x16 oil on canvas....... winner of the Viewers Choice Award at the North Kitsap Arts and Crafts show SOLD

I love the movement of the rain and the wet look of the street in this one...how do you DO that??!!
Can't wait to spend a 'typical rainy day' in Seattle with you again!
