8x10 Oil on Canvas
I love the rain, but almost everyone else is a sun seeker. This adage would apply to the owners of these lovely outdoor patios that sit vacant during a summer rain. This patio is at the Papillon Restaurant on Front, a couple of doors down from the Expresso Bar I found when storm chasing.
I recently rented a couple of DVD's by Richard Schmid. He is so methodical and careful in his placement of paint and brush strokes. I was amazed. In one segment, he talked about using a knife to get a nice crisp line. He said that you have one go at it...it must be done right the first time... to which I thought to myself, "Not in this lifetime :)"
