Storm Ending
Thunder blossoms gorgeously above our heads, 
Great, hollow, bell-like flowers, 
Rumbling in the wind, 
Stretching clappers to strike our ears . . . 
Full-lipped flowers 
Bitten by the sun 
Bleeding rain 
Dripping rain like golden honey-- 
And the sweet earth flying from the thunder.

We've had storms and rain.  Heavy rain, streaming down the street with the potential of creeks becoming.  Unfortunately, many people in Colorado and in Mexico have been flooded with rain and mudslides.  Lives and property have been lost.  A warm end-of-summer thunderstorm can turn deadly.  

We're going up to Bethesda North hospital today to pick up the photos and paintings that did not sell during the show.  Artists whose work that was accepted into this year's show will be dropping off their work at the same time (neither Sweetie nor I entered this year).  I was very pleased to sell one painting out of the show this year.

And tomorrow is the Evergreen opening of the GCWS member show - artist reception from 1:00 - 4:00 pm Sunday, September 22, at the Evergreen Retirement Center, 230 West Galbraith Road, Cincinnati.  

A busy weekend and a rainy weekend, according to the weather guessers.

Congratulations on the sale! I really admire the way you are getting your art out to the public to be enjoyed. That's what art is for, to be seen in person. It's a far more moving experience than seeing it online. Good luck with the next show!

Thanks, Katherine. I am always pleased when someone is willing to buy a piece and take it home (although I immediately think "I should paint another just like that" and then never get around to it! ha ha)
