I came through waves of drizzle and momentary dry spots on my way here. Rain forecast all day. On arrival the rain got heavier and I took cover in the car trying to figure out how I could work in these conditions. A moderate breeze liable to carry off my umbrella didn’t help! I decided to give it a go and got set up and underway, umbrella propped up between my knees. I cannot begin to describe the thrill of creating this work which is forcing me to paint boldly and look and look again. As I embarked on the final of my three studies the island began to disappear before my eyes which focused the mind in one last rapid and free moment. A wonderful day.
