Downpour by Karen Gadient, 2017

Downpour. Acrylic on canvas.

It’s been monsoon season here in Arizona; the humidity has gone up and the rain has been coming down. While I loathe the heat of summer here, I admit that I love monsoon rainstorms―even with their occasional haboobs―enough to put up with the crazy temperatures. How’s the weather where you are?

The rain is falling all around,
It falls on field and tree,
It rains on the umbrellas here,
And on the ships at sea.
― Robert Louis Stevenson

  1. We finally have a break from the hot weather, but still very dry. Looking forward to fall!

  2. I feel a burst of energy when i look at this painting.

    That is so awesome! As a fellow monsoon-er, I can appreciate the dilemma of hating the heat but loving a good thunderstorm. 😀

  4. I didn’t realize Arizona was subject to monsoon seasons. I just learned something!

  5. Love these colours Karen! We’ve been in NYC and the weather was perfect, One day of rain.

  6. It’s warm enough to go out with just a raincoat but we need our brollies at the ready in Scotland at the moment. I’m back to London soon so I’ve heard the weather is hotter and sunnier down there for now. You watch the day I arrive so will autumn.

    • I wouldn’t mind a bit of autumn (or more rain, since we haven’t had any in a week or so now). We’ll be back in Scotland sometime next year, and I suspect the weather won’t be as sunny this time around–but maybe we’ll be surprised!

  7. Perfect name for that piece!

  8. It has been for days without rain down here
    But I sure love that painting of yours
    Quite some lively bold bluey 🙂 🍸
