After the Cloudburst


After the Cloudburst, 12 x 16
.
On Wednesday afternoon, we had a short but dramatic thunderstorm - there was even lightning. It just kind of rolled in and rolled out leaving large cloud banks lingering on the horizon. Since I had been teaching all morning my stuff was already in the car, so I got myself down to the lakeside as quick as I could to catch a few of them.
.
In a health and wellness side note: remember that great husband of mine who brought me the beautiful flowers on Valentine's Day? He is just so giving - this week he brought me the flu! Hopefully my Tamiflu prescription will keep me from getting it too bad, but I am down for the count. So not fun.

This painting looks tasty--those look like big scoops of whipped cream.

Poor Laurel,

The flu is something that's hard to avoid when your mate has it. Beautiful painting. You just constantly wow me. I just sit at my computer thunderstruck. Super clouds, and wonderful colour.

Get better,

XOXOXOXOBarbara
