Michael Chesley Johnson - More Drizzle
I really can't complain about living in the "grey zone" here in the Canadian Maritimes. This extended period of fog, drizzle and rain does me a favour. The grey overcast saturates the colours, pouring rich color throughout the landscape.
I went out the other afternoon - again, between bouts of rain - and got caught. Not as much drizzle as the day before, but enough that I could see it building up on the paint surface. I tipped my easel forward to keep any more rain off the panel so I wouldn't have to fight with the water.
"More Drizzle, November"
