Rain Dance


 Rain Dance


The last weeks of summer are upon us.  We've been melting here in the Midwest with the longest high temps in the history of the states and finally, FINALLY, it rained!  It poured!!  I've never been so happy to see water falling from the sky.  Right now it's 87 degrees and I can't wipe the smile off my face.  This painting is a celebration of gorgeous rain.  I had so much fun creating it with tons of drips like the rain dripping down my window.  Here's an "in progress" pic:

  2. rain after a long hot summer - must be the best. the smell of the rain on hot tar, the steam as it rises up from the grass - ah summer is almost here.(for me at any rate)
