Rainy Days and Thursdays...

It is raining today, just like yesterday and the day before that, and probably tomorrow. Usually I like the rain, but here in February, when things are at their bleakest foliage-wise, it is especially dreary. When I remember the extreme dullness of the long winters I endured up north, however, it doesn't seem so bad. And the rain does have a wonderful ability to wash things clean [shades of Travis Bickel] so that is a plus. I did this linoleum print/collage/painting of a car lot in the nearby "metropolis" of Wilmington. Not terribly scenic, but I do like the rain effect. I look forward to spring.

I'll gladly swap you the heat/semi-drought here for the rain there. Again, great work.
