Wonderful timing on this topic. Rain is what it did last night. Quite a lot, actually. And it’s supposed to rain all weekend. Well, I actually finished a “Friday” challenge more or less on Friday for a change. I challenged myself to do this one in a different style than my usual one. I discovered that simpler doesn’t necesarilly mean less time consuming!

This is delightful. I like that each child has a different reaction to the rain. The bird, on the other hand, just goes with it! I really love your work! I commented on your solstice piece last week, and this week I took a moment to look through your other work…it’s really wonderful. You create the kinds of images that make people imagine the rest of the story…pictures like these used to entrance me as a child, and still do!

Wonderful scene. I love how this kids are having so much fun. I remember loving the rain as a child. Now I have to worry about my make-up & hair, being an adult stinks 😉 Brandi

Very cute and fun, but not for the girl on the right! What is your medium?

Thank you all for your kind words!
My medium is most often pencil and paper and Adobe Photoshop.
