This painting was created during the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association Invitational. The atmosphere was moody as the remnants of the storm in Mexico found its way into the area. I was fortunate to be painting with a couple of other members. I always like the companionship of others when painting. Although you are completely focused on your work, it is nice to sharing something you love with others.
