Here is a painted storm.
Actually, my vision of a storm that has just passed.
See the sludgey grey waters, calm?
See the skies beginning to lighten, though still moody?
The landscape is drenched and sodden, relieved the storm is over.
The clouds still roil above but the storm is moving away and calm is settling over the waves.
The painting reflects my week past.
There have been storms and tears, some mine.
But the storm is passing, moving away.
I feel a little like the landscape, sodden and drenched, relieved the storm has passed.
I'm so proud of this painting. I managed to capture my emotions on canvas in a way that looks beautiful, if slightly dreary. I've never painted clouds before.
Thank Goodness that storms do pass and the sun comes out again.
