Valley of Rain

I am going to start building an Ark. It has rained so much here, and throughout most of the UK, that it doesn't feel like summer at all. I have lush plants in my garden but it's not warm or dry enough to sit out and enjoy it.

Anyway you know the saying about making lemonade, well here's mine. I did this piece on gessoed board and was pleasantly surprised to find that it produced a rain-like effect with a little help from me.
