Back here in Michigan, I am back at painting pastels, this time of the Big Lake rather than the Red Rocks of Sedona.
A rainbow was just starting to form after a thunderstorm at dawn was clearing away, and I got a picture of it, which inspired this painting.
It reminds me that rainbows appear when rain/tears combine with sunshine.
I remember times when I have been in tears, but they were not tears of sorrow, but of overwhelming feeling---sometimes gratitude, sometimes awe, sometimes just something inexpressible and mysterious.
I am so glad for rainbows in my life, and I imagine you are too.
