Description of Rain on the High Plains

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to paint a scene depicting the Martin’s Cove area of Wyoming as a tribute to one of my collegues’ mother who was serving a church mission there. I have wanted to do a follow up to that piece and have been studying and practicing how to paint rainy, dreary scenes. In this little piece, I am trying to convey the sacrifice and shear courage and determination it took for these hearty pioneers to risk their lives and exercised their faith to relocate in the west.
