Rain in the distance is a common sight when crossing the glades this time of year. Scenes like this are common on both Alligator Alley and the Tamiami Trail. I worked this painting, one of several, after crossing the "alley" on short notice to bring documents to the airport for my brother-in- law. He had left his money and passport on the bed in Marco and had to have them to get on the plane! Luckily I made it with plenty of time and came home with a head full of paintings from the wonderful moving, changing light. I was fortunate not to be rained on until I was almost back home!
