Why, it was just a week ago I told some friends I would give them $20 bucks if they can give me a thunderstorm! How I miss a nice rumbling thunderstorm. The kind that starts low in the distance, gently getting louder as it approaches. I do not get cabin fever in the wintertime because I spend my time outside hiking, oh but how I miss my spring and summer storms!
Today came pretty close. I didn’t actually hear thunder, but the storm was strong none the less.
This morning I awoke to heavy rain beating at my windows. My favorite way to wake up. There’s nothing more soothing than to be warm under blankets, in your jammies, listening to the rain.
Today’s sketch shows the layers of rain saturated clouds that passed through at high speeds. For most of the day rain soaked the earth in buckets. The wind was strong and it made the rain fall sideways. I was happy.
I think I should have studied meteorology, because disturbances in the atmosphere always gets me so excited! I guess for now I’ll just keep painting storms instead.
