Rain

Rain
6 x 6"
oil on board

I remember driving home from the lake last summer with rain coming down in columns all around me. I was in awe; it wasn't raining right where I was on the road, but it seemed that everywhere I looked there were long columns of rain coming from the clouds. I had never seen anything like it. Often on the prairies when it rains you see big, flat sheets of rain, but in this case there had to be ten or more long, skinny pillars of rain sporadically placed around the horizon, near and far. It is difficult to explain what I saw except to say that the drive home looked like this painting only tenfold. Spectacular.

Beautiful. In Nova Scotia we see what you describe when rain is coming across the ocean. It is a very cool sight. Then it's time to run for it!

Love your painting.

XOXOXOXOXO Barbara

I'm glad you can relate to this scene, Barbara. It got me thinking... what if someday I was in Nova Scotia with you?! How amazing would that be?
