Rain painting, painting rain

Many walks this July with raincoat always on and hood always up. Feet getting sprinkled with raindrops walking through tall grasses. Ears attuned to sounds of millions of drops falling through leaves. For the eyes, a palette of greys, greens and hay coloured grasses. Soft tones because the sun is hiding.

PJ and Piscín

A farmer and a cat he rescued as a kitten. Her name is Snowball, though she was more of a dainty Snowflake when found - they all call her Piscín - West of Ireland Irish for kitten.

When Snowball was a little Snowflake.

Rain Music

Rain is the artist today. Painting in shades of soft green and grey.

Steady tapping rhythm of millions of tiny drops dripping down through the leaves of a forest.
Softer and lighter sounds, rain carried on the wind in an open field of long grass.

Expanding dimples in the puddles.
