Rain on My Skylight

Early in January: icy rain tat tat tats on the skylight over my head. Pinpricky tapping patter. Rapid little clackety heartbeats.

Indoors, I let ink and wax pastel trace watery paths down my otherwise rectilinear collage.

My own little clackety heart taps out a tattoo, happy as can be.

  2. Oops, meant to reply re the colors, also—they've really been calling out to me of late. You'll see a post soon (tomorrow maybe) about my attachment to them.

  3. This is so terrific! Love the splotchy texture! Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain... telling me just what a fool I've been...

    1. I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain
      And let me be alone again!

      The splotchy texture was soothing to create and it was my signature on an assignment that wasn't directed to have other than verticals and horizontals. The rebel in me loved scribbling and softening : )

  4. I love Rain on your skylight. In fact, I just love the blues, and am doing a few myself! Cool Play it again Sam postcards, too. They look Asian to me.

    1. Hi Laurie, eager to see your blues—and I don't mean the blues telling you what a fool you've been!

      Love your perception of Asian in my postcard.

    1. Corinna, if you click on the link it will be life-size (even though not live and three dimensional). The larger image will give you more of a feel for the piece.
