Singin’ in the Rain

I’m singing in the rain
Just singing in the rain
What a glorious feelin’
I’m happy again

I’m laughing at clouds
So dark up above
The sun’s in my heart
And I’m ready for love

Let the stormy clouds chase
Everyone from the place
Come on with the rain
I’ve a smile on my face

I walk down the lane
With a happy refrain
Just singin’
Singin’ in the rain~ lyrics by Arthur Freed,MGM Producer

lyrics sang by Gene Kelly
in the 1952 American musical comedy film,
Singin’ in the Rain~ref: Wikipedia

We are not supposed to love cars, but I have to admit I love my Mini. I have driven this terrific little car for over seven years and love it as much now as the day I bought it. When it rains, this little car just seems to sing. If a car could glow; it does! It truly seems joyful in the rain, and it is not unusual for me to be humming this song as I drive it “down the lane.” It is raining here today and it felt like a great time to give a watercolor tribute to my little Mini, small but mighty!

I am a photographer who loves to paint. Or, I am a painter who loves photography? No matter, they are very compatible! :) I really enjoy working in watercolor, and love the magical qualities that it can give to a work of art! You will see photography,watercolor and acrylic paintings on my bubble. Hope you enjoy! :)

    …it’s ivory and black with chekered side mirors!!! It’s my third one…been driving them for almost 10 years! I actually wanted my first one to be green like the one on your painting but it was not available in Canada anymore!!! Very cool car!

  • Those checkered side mirrors would be very sporty with the ivory and black! Bet they see you coming! :)
