I don't usually paint over my finished paintings, but I made an exception for this piece. I really hated what was underneath, so I sanded it down and gessoed over the whole thing. I was thick and random with the gesso and it turned into a very fun texture still visible under the finished piece.
I ended up liking this piece so much that I decided it should hang in our living room....at least...
I loved painting this piece, it came easily and I loved just letting myself be playful with it.

This is by far my favorite of the recent rainy day scenes.
