Sleepy Sundays: Light Rain

Light Rain Light Rain

The title of this work has a double meaning. The first being the obvious, weather-related phrase definition. The second goes a bit deeper. It’s meant to be a contradiction, or rather, blatant opposites somehow being fused together. Think of darkness and light together, sadness in a storm being shared with some colorful light.

Life is a series of ups and downs for all of us. My own has been no different, especially lately. The push and pull of these intense highs and unrelenting lows has left me a bit of a mess. The beauty of art is it doesn’t have to make sense. It just is, and oh what a “bella figura” can come from that.

This work was inspired by something my son said on our way home today. “It can’t rain all the time.”  He unknowingly quoted one of my favorite movies, The Crow.  

Are you a glass half empty or glass half full kind of person? Perhaps a little of both? Do tell. You know I love a good coffee chat.

Have a colorful Sunday!

It’s rare that I post a photo that has not been cropped or edited in some way. This brief moment in time was different. Some things are just better left untouched. If you look closely, in the center of the photo – there is a faint rainbow. In person, this rainbow was gigantic and dramatic in all of its hues. I so wish I had a better camera on me at the time, but, we were on our way back from grocery shopping and all I had on me was my phone.

Sometimes life has its ways of telling you everything is going to be alright.

When (if at all) was the last time you saw a rainbow? How did it make you feel?

Have a colorful Sunday!
