April Showers and Flowers

Spring is here, and with the change in weather comes the first thunderstorms of the season. Last Friday's rain-soaked evening inspired me to paint this scene, where a flowering crabapple tree stands against the windy evening rains. I don't typically paint rainy scenes or ones with streetlights, so this landscape was an interesting challenge - the illuminated rain drops near the lights combine with the rain streaks and splatters on the road to give the illusion of falling rain.

Acrylic painting: 14" x 17"
