Watching the Rain

I remember as a child in elementary school I had a teacher that suggested we use as many colors in our crayon box in one drawing as possible. I was confused at first but it was like she gave us the keys to the candy store. I unlearned something that day. To go past the lines, outside the box. I will never forget that day or that teacher.
There is more than meets the eye initially and it is amazing.
I drive by this field almost everyday and have painted it many times. The landscape changes subtly or drastically due to the time of day, the season and the ever changing sky.
