Spring in the Summer

"Peaceful Rain"
24" x 24" acrylic and collage on canvas

Prints available on Etsy or at Imagekind.com

Feeling a bit loopy this morning after Maisie woke us up at 4:30am barking her pants off at a family of raccoons. It seems this little family of six has taken up residence near the creek behind our property. Fortunately, we have a fence but Maisie is determined to shout out the "no trespassing" bark anyway just to be sure!

The above painting is the next addition to my new series. I think this is also a transition piece because it seems very different to me than the previous ones. I like the way things are going though so I'm goin' with the flow!

I found this sweet poem today that seems to go very well with the painting.

Have a good one!

Rain

Peaceful, calming, reassuring,
thunder rolls on by,
dancing is the rain,
sky white with lightening,
I dance,
for I am at peace,
the rain oh so soothing,
it pours down my face,
I run free and wild,
while I sleep,
I have no fear,
my dreams peaceful,
I thank the rain...

I love all of these new pieces. There is a glowing softness, punched up with contrast here and there. Very strong work.
