So Seattle has our summer weather, reaching record breaking temperatures. While the Bay Area stayed a consistent 60 - 70's all week. In the mornings I see the fog slowly rolling in over the hills and by the afternoon I can't help but think it might rain. I guess that's what inspired this painting....looks like a storm is brewing over those hills?
