Spring Within the Rain


 

The rain has been visiting quite a lot lately, even more than we've expected. Don't get me wrong, I love rain. My head seems to work better when the sky is grey and the weather is chilly. While most people would pray for clear blue skies and bright sunshine, I prefer gloomy clouds above and the sound of rain tapping on my windows. I guess I'm just strange that way. :)

But even as the wind blew tiredlessly outside, I had spring in mind when I drew this sweet looking little girl named Zoe. Just look at her beautiful clear blue eyes. Now tell me, how can you not think of blue skies when you look into a pair of eyes like those? I was told that she likes running, dancing, flowers and dresses. Isn't that adorable? I just hope she likes the drawing when it arrives at her door.

Anyway, here are a few reminders of bright sun shiny days in the middle of the pouring rain outside...

 
 
 
 

So toodleloo for now, darlings! Rain or sunshine, I hope you have a smile on your face. :)

Hugs,

  5. A lovely aqua post! Blue eyes fascinate me as I have brown myself. Weirdly, my children have blue eyes so there must be a gene for them somewhere in the family's past. :)
    You've made such a beautiful drawing of the blue-eyed girl, she's going to be thrilled to pieces!

  10. What a wonderful post! I love all your photos, and your drawing looks so much like my sister it's a bit eerie to me :) Maybe that's just my sister is a bit eerie?

    1. Haha! If this girl looks like your sister, then "eerie" is definitely not the right word for her!

  12. Zoe is gorgeous! I love your portraits. I too love a rainy day and have an app on my phone that sounds like rain and thunder. I listen to if often...so we are both cut from the same strange cloth ♥
