Soaked Pine Watercolor


The air is sweet green.
It has been raining for two days and while most are scoffing, I welcome the rest.

A steady downpour puts me in a trance without me even realizing it. I stare at strings of rain like crystal beads against the dark of pine. Beating rain pelting the ground is rhythmic and before you know it, I’m worlds away.

The pine is happy in the rain, it supports two inches of new growth in the form of bright blue/green needles.
The birds in the pine are happy as they are still singing constantly in the rain.
And I, the spectator in the rain, I am happy too.


      1. I’m sorry, I did not. June was crazy with weddings and graduation parties. It seems July was too and part of August in the next few weeks.

  1. Ooooooo I love your paintings and your descriptions…You INSPIRE Me! I’m sitting at this computer daily, looking out at lots of green…trees, golf course, lawn, underbrush…wondering how to paint soooo much green and have it look like anything. Your delightful fir tree enjoying it’s warm gentle shower has helped to enlighten me once again. Now…to take the next step…action! I have a bad case of the ROP’s right now…Rut-Of-Procrastination! Hopefully I will be coming out of it soon. πŸ˜‰

    1. Thank you, Colleen! I’m so glad to hear you are inspired. You can do it!!!!! Start small and don’t put too much pressure on yourself. Just a tiny little 10 minute sketch will lift your creative spirit! AND have fun… the most important thing!! πŸ˜€
