|Charles Burchfield's Rainy Night|
More wind forecast for tomorrow but tonight is a blowin' up a gale .
The pines and cedars in the woods around me are howling and the bay is tumbling all over itself getting itself in quite a lather as the wind whips up whitecaps and waves.
How much it seems like an early spring or late autumn night outside.
Everything glistens with rain and the howling winds are shaking the tops of the pines.
I enjoy noisy weather. Thunder, the rain on roof tops and the rush of the wind can be comforting if you are inside and exhilarating if you are outside.
The painting is by Charles Burchfield , around 1930 or so. I use it often as a desktop for my computer because I like this type of art quite a lot.
There is a complete story here and you can make it whatever you wish but it evokes feeling and I enjoy that.
The picture is enlargeable if you would care to see it in more detail.
What kind of weather do you like? What about art? Does this picture tell you a story and if so, what is it about?
