I drove home last night in the dark and the blessed rain---well, it was more drizzle at that point, but it was WET! This morning, as I painted, I tried to remember what it looked like on the bypass, flanked as it was by dark, hulking trees and with car tail lights floating like low flung, bright fireflies. My trusty rain gauge reported a total of 1.1 inches of rainfall---yay!!!!!!! Not a deluge, but something nevertheless!
I added some sketches of shells to my accordion sketchbook featuring water life. This will be the book I use to record flora, fauna, flotsam, jetsam in and of the sea, rivers, streams,and ponds that I encounter this year. I LOVE the accordion format---it makes a story of my images without my having to add a word! You know me, though---I will add those words.
I apologize for the poor quality of the photos. I didn't have time to obsess over them.
I leave for Hawaii next Tuesday, a watery land, indeed! I'll post with particulars before I go. Thank you so much for your interest in, and support of, my search for water this year.
