Things are a little off today.
After the rain had been coming down for about a half hour, I remembered the vintage suitcases I've been airing out for over a week.
Even the dog is cantankerous, busting through a makes-shift gate and spending all morning relaxing without a care on the "off-limits" couch. Notice... no sense of urgency or shame as I take her picture to admit into evidence.
Since all was a bit gloomy, I decided to just go with it.
Rainy days are great for napping and eating cookies, but they are also great for Gelli printing. Today's color scheme - gloomy.
Last night, my daughter looked into the sky and said, "I love that color." I looked up and saw what seemed to be a non-descript nighttime sky. She said, "you know, blue, brown, green, gray." And I looked again. She was right. There were beautiful, rich, and deep tones in that seemingly blah sky. I just needed to look a little more closely.
As I sit here, I can look out my window and see the gorgeous dark brown of wet pine bark, the glassy white of rain-drenched leaves, the intense black of pavement saturated by water. Maybe rainy days and Mondays aren't so bad after all.
