"Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver, liquid drops." Langston Hughes
The spring rains have started. Even in the city I like the rain when walking under the cosiness of an umbrella. The gray is easy on the eyes and restful.
This painting is much like "Éloge du Silence" in meaning. The quietness of walking alone can be restorative but to me rain adds an element of security, like being wrapped in a soft blanket.
Workshops are rare in these parts. P.E.I. artist Sandi Komst is doing a painting workshop in Rothesay, N.B. on the 24 and 25 of April. It's $150, lunch is included and the class is limited to 15 people. There's just a bit of space left. Contact the coordinator, Eleanor Ferguson Jenkins at 831-7693 or 848-6646 for more info.
