"This painting began as a plein air study on a sunny afternoon by Crystal Creek. The story and the painting quickly changed as storm clouds began to build over the mountains. The Coming Rain is about those moments just before the storm, when a quiet stillness takes over the landscape." – Dave Santillanes
