Subverting any pathetic fallacy that could be associated with his rainy day painting series, artist Tom Birkner shows the intense beauty that occurs on even the most miserable of rain-soaked days.

When it pours, many people rush to lock themselves inside, not daring to take a look outside in case what they see sends them into bouts of depression. Birkner, on the other hand, prefers to showcase the wet and stormy world as viewed from the protection of a car.

In his rainy day painting, Tom Birkner portrays the darkness outside, broken up by streaks of light and color, as well as the drops of water that cover the windshield like a filter which tempers the gloom. Stats for Stormy Windshield Sceneries Trending: Older & Chilly
