|Rainy Day Thoughts, 5 1/2 by 7 1/2 watercolor, 300 lb. d'Arches cold press paper|
In the West and Great Plains, rain always is welcome, though at other times of the year you can't count on it being gentle. It will be chilly today, but gentle, a hint of spring perhaps.
The promise of rain brings happy thoughts, freshening the odor of life, of love.
I especially enjoy watching rain descending in a transparent curtain, softening the horizons. That's a metaphor for sure. Perhaps from a cabin window, with a fire, a book, warm soup, a cat dozing nearby.
"Pluviophile--(n), a lover of rain, someone who finds joy and peace of mind during rainy days"
