More Big Storms And Female Rain

 August 23, 2022

   Another big storm rolled in over Ratcliff Ridge last night. Always striking when the foreground is lit up and the background is in deep shadow.

Monsoon II

   Let's take a closer look.

Monsoon III

Looks ominous, but it didn't roar like several other recent cloud bursts. These storm clouds blew over and then about an hour later we got, what the Navajos call "female rain." Gentle and steady.

   Still rounding up images for the Phippen Art Show.

   My curator Kristi was here yesterday compiling a spreadsheet of what is actually available for the show. She has documented, 20 paintings and 26 scratchboards already framed, with another 24 scratchboards ready for framing, for a grand total of 60 pieces. Keep in mind I told the Phippen I needed a gallery to showcase 30. There's a moral about inflation in here somewhere.

"The purpose of writing is to inflate weak ideas, obscure pure reasoning, and inhibit clarity. With a little practice, writing can be an intimidating and impenetrable fog!"
