"A Little Fall of Rain" 6x11 framed original oil painting


Not all storms are enormous, with darkness clouding the sky and thunder rumbling through. Some are small cloudbursts. In life, these small storms aren’t earth-shattering but they can still be uncomfortable and difficult to navigate. It’s easy to brush these small challenges off and think of them as just annoying hassles but if we let them, they can teach us and empower us as much as the big storms. Small things add up quickly and shape us slowly. Big heavy storms can destroy new growth for quite a while before building us up again but a little fall of rain helps strengthen the blossoms and let them grow a little brighter almost immediately. They still teach us love and compassion, especially in small ways, and though they aren’t really enjoyable, the small, consistent storms don’t destroy us and, over time, can have a powerful effect.

“A Little Fall of Rain” is an original oil painting triptych on oil paper with deckled edges. It is mounted on canvas and framed in a 6x11 inch white frame. The frame can be hung or rest on a shelf. It displays horizontally. It is ready to ship. Please select “Medium Original Painting Shipping” as your shipping option at checkout.

The Stormy Skies collection was created not only because I find incredible beauty in real storms, but also because these swirling clouds remind me of the beauty found in our personal storms. The tempests of life often come with no invitation. They are hard and sad and seemingly unending, but when we get a little distance and look back, we usually have a new perspective. If we choose to look with fresh eyes, we can see the ways we grew, how we gained deeper compassion for others, and we notice the small miracles and gifts that happened. Seeing these beautiful skyscapes every day reminds me that even in the worst hardships, there is value and beauty to be found. We just have to open our eyes and look for it.
