Downpour

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
