Friday started off as a rainy day...not what you want for a paint out. By noon it had stopped raining so I decided to meet two friends over by the water in Mastic. We were all set up working away at our easels when I saw a "plop" and then another "plop" in the water in front of my. Luckily I turned my paper support over immediately because it started to rain heavily. I ran to the car and put the painting inside. By the time I got back to my easel my palette was filled with water. I dumped the water out, but I swear my Windsor Green may never dry out. My friend, Marlene, was painting with pastels so she immediately covered those up and put them in her car. Apparently if pastels get wet they turn to dust when they dry. Lorraine had just done a wash in her sky and now had drops of rain making blooms. Here is Lorraine putting up an umbrella a little late.
Here is what the sky looked like. Would you have worried? LOL
After the rain stopped we all got back to work...this time I had my umbrella up.
Here is my finished painting. (8 x 10) This painting also went into the show.
