Calistoga, Ca

(5"x7" gouche on watercolor board)

This was the first time ever painting in the RAIN. Although the rain was intermittent, it caused me to retreat to my SUV. I ended up using the trunk door as shelter. I usually carry an EasyL umbrella... mainly for the summer paintouts. But I think using my trunk door will be the best option during the rest of these April showers.


  1. Ah, Gerald, now you are initiated into the secret ways of the Wet Ones up north! A beautiful painting!

  2. Hi! Thank you, this Nor-Cal weather is just so unpredictable..... each paintout is quite an adventure :)
