Rain at the Arno was months in the planning. I'm particularly proud of the umbrella and the coat. While I was living in Florence last year, I would dart down to the Arno River every time it rained to see it swelling. It puts on a phenomenal show when it is full!

Below are progressive images showing the development of the painting. The third shot shows the painting through the window of my Glasgow apartment.
