"Some people feel the rain,
Others just get wet."
I was caught in a drenching spring rain storm while changing the sprinkler lines one afternoon on the farm. I had just changed my wet clothes at the house, when I looked outside to see the sun bursting out of the cloud bank and lighting up the horizon with luminous color and reflective puddles of water. I ran to the lane with my back pack and painting gear, threw a panel on my easel and started to capture the beauty before me. It wasn't until after my last few strokes of paint that I realized I was in my pajamas!
