Skagit Valley Rainstorm

5 x 7 oil on hardboard
Yesterday I took a road trip to Bellingham, Washington. All the way home I was in and out of rainshowers. One minute it would be a beautiful, sunny spring day, the next it was pouring rain. This little study is based on a photo I snapped in the Skagit Valley looking east toward the Cascade Mountains. It was difficult to tell where the foothills ended and the storm clouds began. My goal was to capture the atmosphere of the spring rains.
