Patrick Saunders painted this in the rain at Craig Sole Designs in Overland Park as part of the annual Stems Plein Air event. It's been difficult for him to paint this year at this event because it has rained constantly for the last two weeks, but this charming work came out of less than ideal weather. Yet another painting of Patrick's that I have to try not to get attached to, because this one will sell fast! I should just try not to even look to closely at his work anymore when I photograph it - ha! Patrick said he felt the light reflections on the wet patio rocks is what really made the painting.
