Waiting for the rain – Day 149

A huge clap of thunder woke me up early this morning and unfortunately it came with a migraine. It’s been hot and humid today and we’re expecting more thunderstorms overnight. I’m hoping that will help clear my head!

It’s been very dry here and we desperately need the rain. I know our garden will certainly appreciate it! We invested in a second rain barrel on the weekend so we can cut down on our water consumption this summer, it will be nice to use them.

I worked a little of the drawing of the trilliums in the woods on a 24″ x 36″ canvas. I find drawing is much easier to do than painting when I’m feeling under the weather. It’s going to be a beautiful painting…I’m not sure if it will detailed like the split rail fence or whether I’m going to go for a looser feel.

I did spend a little time online this evening getting caught up on the news and I found these really crazy offices. I could see myself working well in a couple of them but some I found a little over the top!
