Summer Rain: You can almost feel a light, cool mist settle on your skin as you take in the icy blue of the rainy sky. The lighting in the painting is rare, as it depicts a day so bright that it nearly bleaches out the hue of the sky around the sun and clouds. Underneath the pale sky, the colors of the inlet water and marsh grass give off a vibrant glow. The contrast of colors in this painting of a marsh on a sunny but rainy day speaks to the wild weather of the summer, when violent storms and balmy skies can blend together at a moment’s notice. Summer Rain shows the hybrid of weather for which summer on the coast is known, creating unique and beautiful natural landscapes.
