I've been doing a lot of abstract painting lately, extremely abstract. No brush, no paint, no canvas, I just think about it. Stephen Wright

Rainy Day People

Rainy Day People by Michael Mitchener

With Sunday's rainy forecast, I thought it would be a great day to work on April's painting based on a photograph of mine called, Rainy Day People. The photo was taken on a very wet day through the rain-splattered windshield on my way to work. While it won't be a surprise to some, I like streetcars and I tend to photograph them. Painting streetcars seems like the next logical step in my evolving addiction. Sunday turned out to be a better day than predicted and it didn't rain all that much but I enjoyed staying in and painting away the day all the same. See you in May.
