Summer of Colour- Summer Rain


Hello! It's week 2 at Summer of Colour and this week the colours are: coral, teal and bright white. So I came up with this piece which reminds me of a Summer's storm. The darkness and fresh humid air after the dry heat and then the violence as it sloshes down. I love the smell of the damp ground, that earthy scent and the delightful freshness that comes with a Summer's storm. We had this during the week-end after such a dry hot week. It was delightful to let in the fresh air again and Lulu loved the darkness, thunder and lightning. It was exciting for her, we even had a little walk in the rain.




This is another piece I doodled last night and coloured in today. The flowers are rejoicing after the Summer rain and just before going to bed the sun pops out to say good night!

I love the sound of those summer storms - unfortunately here in Scotland the summer storms aren't much different from the winter ones (minus the snow!) and the heat is usually missing altogether! Lovely pieces and I love the interpretation of the storm in your abstract art!

I so appreciate your abstract art. I've never been good at abstract, so I might have to visit often for inspiration. Your work is stunning. And I like the one you colored in today, too. It is fantastic.

It seems all we've had lately are summer storms. Most have come at night. I don't mind them as long as my electricity doesn't go off.

Please stop to view my SOC abstract this week..

These are beautiful! Your colours came out perfectly - I'm struggling with finding something in the coral range but I'm sure I have something in this pile-o-stuff! Bravo!

I do like the abstracts very much, I can see them hanging together in a light room. Your detailed one is something special, definitely a Kat-special, with the flowers dancing happily in the evening sun.

Beautiful bold pieces! And I love the association with summer storms. I love thunder storms, unfortunately, most of the time, I can just hear the thunder in the distance. So frustrating when it passes by, but when it comes, it's wonderful.
