"Roots of the Sky" 18x24, Oil on Gessobord
As I was thinking about roots I got this thought that lightning looks like roots from a tree. I love the play of textures where there is this hard glassy color against the clouds and sheets of rain. Soft against hard, cool against warm.
I love rain. I like the smell of it and the feel of it. My favorite jogs have been in the rain. I just love what it does to the land and sky. I know for some it is a fearful time with thunder and lightning and in our part of the world: tornadoes. I like to think what rain can bring though: abundance, refreshment, growth, and ultimately, hope.
