Summer showers, Oklahoma watercolor

Summer showers, Oklahoma, watercolor, 11 by 14, 300 lb. d'ArchesAdd caption
Okies  yearn for rain these hot, muggy days.
Vegetation runs riot, takes over, as the years pass. My small Oklahoma summer painting inspired this larger vision, yearning for cool showers on weathering metaphorical structures.
"Paint what you feel"-- I yearn for rain, any rain.
Day 18 of WorldWatercolorMonth daily challenge.
Palette--Aureolin Yellow, real green, Prussian blue, Cobal blue, Quin and many siennas and umbers
