It's Raining: Have Any Rain Pictures Or Artwork?

Today it's raining in Los Angeles, a big deal when you live in the desert, and as I look out my window at the shiny streets, I realize that I don't have one photograph or piece of art that shows a scene in the rain.

How about you? Have any rainy-day work? This popular artist certainly has his share:

Hi, Chuck,

I'm in drought country, too -- and rain is my favorite type of weather!

Sometimes, we get actual rain, here --

Sometimes, I have to create my own -

I love the Afremov image you've posted, above. His was the first artwork I ever saw or 'Favorited' on FAA -- hard to miss when it's on the Recently Sold page every day!

 

Chuck, I meant to add -

Congratulations on your rare, rainy day -- I hope you enjoy it!

I have family in LA; I'll call and urge them outside. :-)

Wendy, nice ones! Especially the ones you created.

Andee, I keep telling myself that I must do that. Maybe tonight.

And, of course, with rain, come these:

HA! It's finally 80 degrees and sunny here in Seattle. My mind is far from the rain hahaha

However, the pictures posted here are very nice. I especially like the double rainbows, Matt!

Kylani, I've never been to Seattle but I hear a day without rain is a good one. An old friend of mine, Joe Roth, brought the Sounders soccer to Seattle. He loves the city.

Beautiful! I'm really anxious to get some of those night scenes. Especially the lights reflecting off the streets and sidewalks.

When I moved to "Hollywood" and worked in movies, one of the first things I noticed when I worked at night was that there was always a big water truck standing by. I soon learned what it was for: just before shooting, they would water down the streets. It didn't matter if the scene called for rain or not: they wanted that reflection to add eye candy to the shot.

Next time you watch a movie, look for the night scenes and see if the streets are wet.

Very interesting Chuck!! Next time I'll watch a movie I will surely pay attention to this detail... the wet streets on purpose...:)

Emona, here is a Montmartre scene that I used as a wallpaper for awhile that reminds me of your fine painting above:

Probably a scene from a movie and, yes, the streets are wet.

Beautiful image, Chuck! It is the Place de Tertre in Monmartre, indeed a special place... I was inspired by the artists with their umbrellas in my painting, you intuited very well. And yes, the streets are slightly wet.....:)

Even in this real estate ad, we can see that the street, sidewalk and driveway have been watered down to make a more pleasing picture.

Some great rain images posted overnight. Thank you!

Last night I intended to drag my lazy butt outside and take some reflection shots, but... noooo. The raining stopped before sunset, the sun came out, everything dried out, and sprinkling didn't start up again until sometime in the wee hours of the night.

I wanted to recapture this shot in the rain at night:

Rain in the Arizona Desert, south of Rodeo, NM. And of course, before the rain, if I remember prevailing wind conditions there correctly, at the point where I stood. And in the far background, it would be after the rain.

I'm jealous. Such cool rain shots and I have none. Maybe 'cause we've only had less than 6 inches this season when the norm is almost 15.

All I have is another after-the-rain shot:

Nice to see some more PAINTINGS of rain, Jani. We haven't had that many... maybe a dozen. I imagine they would be very hard to paint.
