Seems like we’ve been having epic amounts of rain. Maybe we’ve just had the usual amount, who knows. One tends to monitor rain — subconsciously. At first it’s wonderful, so calming, so delicate. After days of missing the sun, rain can seem a little oppressive. I remind myself that it’s still calming and delicate. A cheery light in the studio helps lift my mood. Outdoors, however, Nature runs rampant. And soon a lawn needs to be mowed. The growth of the plants outside is epic.
Indoors I’ve been painting flowers — those flowers, the ones on the table. I want the growth of the flowers in my paintings to be epic.
