Inspired By the Rain

As often happens in Springtime, it has rained here all weekend.  It started on Friday night, and rained all day Saturday.  Then, when it was finally finished, another storm came in right behind it.  If I look out the window right now... yep- still raining.  Somehow the rhythm of the rain got inside me.  All I could see, hear, think of, was rain.  This is what it became.

Let the rain kiss you.  Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops.  Let the rain sing you a lullaby.  ~Langston Hughes

Rain! whose soft architectural hands have power to cut stones, and chisel to shapes of grandeur the very mountains.  ~Henry Ward Beecher

  3. I can feel it. Looking at your painting brings memories of brewing storms ... anticipation of cocooning cosily inside against the storm.

  7. This is just beautiful Sharmon! I love the colors and the motion of the cloud form. I love the sound of spring rain too, don't you? so soft and constant...like breath. My favorite meditation music.
