I could spend another forever on this, 
but I've wrung this one dry.
Found out what I wanted to know.
Rain falls and moves on.
So should I.

good thing you stopped-this is beyond sublime-takes my breath away

Well Sam,

This is gorgeous. It appears your
many drawers of pastels have been put
to good use. You really nailed this one and
blew me away!

Katherine van Schoonhoven said...

It crackles and fizzles like a summer storm. And after the storm, a cool wind perchance? A sensitive, beautiful painting, Sam!

Thank you
something for me to remember

Rain falls and moves on.
So should I.

I love this. Simple but beautiful.

Kevin Mizner said...

Lovely piece, and a great sentiment; rain falls and moves on (only leaving a puddle...)

Janelle Goodwin said...

This one is beyond beautiful, Sam!

Nicely done. I like a good rain storm

hw (hallie) farber said...

Really beautiful.

Casey Klahn said...

Strong. I can't tell what medium it was done in.

SamArtDog said...

Sorry I forgot to say, pastel. On Pastelmat.

7 x 12, I think.

This is beautiful Sam!!! It caught my eye immediately. I love the diminution of the the path towards the clearing of light on the horizon.

It's often better to stop than start. It's the when that's tough.

A lifetime with pastels wouldn't be enough. But I'll take what I get.

Living inside a painting always makes me want to make it better.

I should also remember my smartass remarks.

Your pastels are simply beautiful, too.

Hopefully, it's the thought that counts.

Making it good enough is really good enough, isn't it?

I like how good rain kind of cleans things up.

Really, thanks!

I like the sound of "clearing of light".

wonderful color.

Is that really you? Are you in Alaska? In a kayak?

Celeste Bergin said...'s beautiful..I love the graphic feel of it, and yet there is plenty of real looking light too. Gorgeous
