"Past the Rain"
Mixed media on stretched canvas

(Cue the "2001 A Space Odyssey Theme")

Wholly crap!

Could it be?

Is it?


It IS!

Ladies and gentlemen, kids of all ages, Jeff Bowser has completed a painting! Alert the media! Crack the bubbly! Smoke 'em if ya got 'em, and keep the women indoors!

Man, it's been awhile. I just finished running the Big Sur Marathon last weekend. The last two weeks have been spent preparing for that. I've been working on this piece for a while now. It's my first full-sized abstract landscape, originally conceived for our mantel, but being sold to a good friend instead. I'm happy she'll have it. It'll have a good home.

It's tough to see in the photo, but under the clouds there is rain falling in the distance.

Thank you so much, Jane. I appreciate the kind words.

So glad this has found a good home - it deserves one. And, yup, glad to hear you got a painting finished ;-)
