Thwarted by thunder,
the concrete concerto
strikes a sour chord
as a dripping cellist
protects his precious partner
and a practical painter watches
acrylic realism melt
into impressionistic watercolor.

Musician in the Rain, Maurice Baquet, Paris, 1957 by Robert Doisneau

I love this ... some might think the painter is a little odd trying to paint in the rain but he probably see's what you've seen... opportunity for unique art!
