Yesterday we expierienced a very impressive afternoon thunderstorm, which brought a downpour of rain. Here it seems like such a treat to get a good storm that brings lots of rain. We don’t get them enough, and I love summer storms, so I really appreciate them while they last. I love that you can listen to them with the windows open, and smell them as rain wets warm concrete and earth. Yesterday I got to enjoy the storm from my art desk with the big window in front of me open. It was a very relaxing way to spend the hours before going into work for the evening. Bill, however, was caught out in sheets of rain on the golf course, and came home soaked. Weather in Colorado is such an adventure. The forecast today calls for more afternoon thunderstorms. I have my fingers crossed that we will, so I am headed out to take advantage of some sunshine.
(this simple illustration was inspired by the recent afternoon rain and by our boy, whom I miss so much everyday it still hurts a little. I miss having him loyally by my side, though it often feels like he’s still right by me…mixed medium project: watercolor, Photoshop, and Illustrator)
