54. Rain Watercolors

When you live in the desert, rain is something to luxuriate in. My son probably doesn’t remember much of the many, many thunderstorms we had in Houston, so it was lovely to take him out to play on a rare rainy day in our new home. After catching the rain from the downspout in several different containers (and pouring it out on the plants), we put some watercolor paintings from the day before in the rain to see what they would do. The colors were beautiful as they ran and mixed. (The original paintings were done with liquid watercolors, which have been fantastic to work with.)
