It is winter, and of course it is raining - its the PNW. We live in a rural area and the streets are typical country roads - no sidewalks. But being native Oregonians, Alicia and Daniel have an umbrella and rainboots, and stoically wait in the muck for the school bus. Daniel is wearing his Oregon Ducks jacket - he was a fan long before they were the #1 college football team. I have taken many pictures of them (which this is one) that I have wanted to paint for a some time now. Alice Thompson's Calypso Moon Artist Movement's November challenge has given me the nudge to just do it. Her challenge is to paint our history and she made the field broad enough to include our todays as well as our yesterdays.
