|"Clouds and water" by Hilary J. England, 8" x 16" oil on canvas, 2016|
So, this constant rain and entrapment has gotten me depressed. I usually like the rain, but after a very stressful month, and so much to do outside, being caged up for days on end finally got the better of me, and I have been feeling down and out.
I decided to just do a little, limited palette study based on some photos I had from India, of Lake Vembanad, and try to think of happier things. It was monsoon, and there was constant rain initially, but then, it cleared away, and you could literally see it moving off into the distance. I hope this current cloud cover that has become stuck over our area decides to move on out of here too. I could use a few days of sunshine. It's either always sunny, or days and days of rain...can't we have a nice happy medium??
So, that's my gripe about the weather. I'll go stick that gripe into the garbage pail along with others ones that have zero ways of being changed hahaha. And no, I'm not traveling away to avoid some rainy days...those adventures will come later.
