Old Cambridge Rd, in the rain, sunset on SAW Hill.

80  F  Some sun some rain.
It was afternoon before I got out, by that time some large rain clouds had moved in.

#601  Old Cambridge Rd.



I'm just about out of panels, and my paint is low.....

I spent a lot of time waiting for the rain to stop, then it started again.

I've been here before, the scene composes itself!

I paint until I don't think I'm improving it, even if they might look half-baked, at least they are never over-worked.

The scene toward the end, the cows moved in a line from the road to the pond.

My spot, dry under my van.

This is Salem Art Works, a few of my fellow exchange artists put on a show in their trailer, they arranged paintings, drawings, sculpture, inside, and there was singing and a reading. This is what I love about Salem2Salem: FUN!

There had been a bunch of running around before the opening, and so I ducked out early and went up the hill.

The hill faces North, the sun sets West,  so the light is raking over and from the side, it was quick.

By the time I took the Money Shot, the light was gone.

There were some spectacular colors just at the last bit of light, I did this.
