Under Grey Skies, the Stream Meanders

Under Grey Skies, the Stream Meanders

Usually, grey skies equal lifeless paintings. That's my plein air experience, at any rate. This particular afternoon, however, I loved discovering all of the gentle nuances carried in the layers of greens, from the edge of the stream to the forested mountains beyond. This time, the lack of definition was the surprise in the Cracker Jack™ box.
