I painted this over the weekend, when it was feeling very wintry -- meaning, we were getting soaked, not merely misted. :)
Like a lot of the locals, I don't mind the rain, and I enjoy experiencing her bluster (in brief increments) at the coast. This is Ecola State Park near Cannon Beach - a favorite coastal destination. I took the photo several winters ago - my family had come out to visit in January - a little break from a Minnesota winter. :)
Anyhoo - rambling about our lame weather while Hurricane Sandy beats up the other end of the country. Sorry about that.
I have lots of family and friends on the East Coast -- we're thinking about you and praying that you stay safe and dry!
