30x30, Oil on Canvas
I love rain. I love the feel of it and the smell of it. I love what it does to light and to land that has long been dry.
I finally feel like I'm happy with the land as there are layers you are looking through and pockets where they are holding more moisture.
Mostly, I try to get at a feeling in the painting. Rainstorms are awesome to behold and at the same time can be terrible. God was described as a cloud in the Old Testament full of awe and mystery. I liked the part where the cloud finally opens and down comes the water washing the land and giving it life.
