Forecast: Rain & Clouds Ahead

Yup, Fall is well under way and with it, the gray skies and drizzle that seem to run from one day into the next. To be clear, I’m not knocking Fall, I’m merely describing the reality of this season in the Pacific Northwest. As a matter of fact, this particular characteristic of Seattle weather has been an inspiration for me and here is the evidence of that…

As mentioned in a previous post, the raindrop motif has been a recurrent one for me. When I first began using it in my cobalt blue hand painting a couple of years ago, it was in part to help me cope with my impending move to Seattle after spending a couple years abroad in China. I have since continued to use it because I just think they’re a lot of fun to paint (not to mention I love each little raindrop character : ).

Recently I’ve been playing with different glaze colors and have even started experimenting with clouds as a related motif. So far, I’m liking what I see!

I think I’ll be making more of these… and I have the entire rainy season ahead of me to keep me at work indoors. But really, I actually love hearing the pitter patter of rain outside, provided I’m warm and dry inside… and can cozy up with a mug of something steaming hot (perfect in one of these little mugs, don’t you think?).
