After yesterday's brilliant sunshine, this morning dawned grey, cool and cloudy, with an almost damp feeling in the air. There has been no rain as of yet but a chance of showers is forecast for this afternoon and evening. Maybe it was the grey cloudiness or the "Sunday-end-of-the-weekend blues", but today I felt the need for a bit of quiet simplicity to brighten my day, so went with a minimalistic palette knife painting on canvas board that honors today's greyness but adds just a touch of color to cheer it up.
I had considered heading out to Joyner Park to paint today, but with the damp, impending-precipitation feel to the air outside, I think I'd rather risk getting rained on while mountain biking than try to scramble putting away art supplies in the event of an afternoon thundershower.
