Have you ever danced in the rain? Perhaps you’ve only dreamt about it….I can’t say that I have, but once I did deliberately go walking in the pouring rain, there is something freeing about it, drenched in the goodness from above…..

Here in this image, a little girl has put on her favourite dress and delights in dancing in the summer rain…..

At the beach yesterday I saw a rainbow and the rain was coming out of just one little cloud…right alongside the rainbow, right out over the sea, but not that far away…..the clouds were deep and fluffy, and I lamented that I couldn’t just reach out and touch them…….then an osprey flew over my head….it felt like i was thrice blessed….I hope this little image sends blessings your way…

the experience reminded me of my friend Jan who is at one with nature…..these sweet things happen to her every day where she lives in the Rocky Mountains, Colorado, I think if God inhabits the earth, he must be there as it’s a heavenly place….love to you Jan x

Drawing on Paper prior to colouring

This drawing was done by hand, photographed and then digitally coloured…there were many layers, I enjoyed exploring and trying out new things

    Oh, how eerie….it rained here this morning for the first time in a long while…I mean REALLY rained …& guess who was out there in her bare feet dancing in it??!!
    Now I feel like this beautiful piece of yours is just for me!

  • oh, that’s so freaky eh!! I can’t get over it……the funny thing is that I’d forgotten all about this drawing, as I’d done it ages ago……yesterday’s beach walk reminded me of it, and I was determined to colour and upload it this morning….I felt inspired! I’m so glad it means something to you too…we must be on some similar wavelength, hugs xxx

    Very sweet Karin…we get to dance in the rain quite a bit here in British Columbia, Canada. Most of us have grown webbed feet in fact. (and we quack from time to time too… lol…)

  • thank you so much Karen, you are the lucky ones then!! LOL… dancing in the rain regularly must put you in a splendiferous sort of mood and keep smiles on faces……..or quacks on beaks!! xxx

    your works are changing to another owe.
    but don’t worry.. these also touching the same place of my heart… :)

  • thank you so much limon…much appreciated, and i can understand, yes…these are a bit different, i’m exploring what my graphics program and my wacom tablet can do when combined…It’s fun, but i’m sure eventually it’ll settle down more into a stronger style again…. :)
