Something Very British In Germany! .....(summer weather)


I received this wonderful depiction of brooding, dark clouds from Martin in Germany which he painted at the end of July.  On the reverse he wrote
        "It seems we have a very British summer this year.
         Lots of clouds, rain and cold, which now travel to you by card."

Looking out of my window right now it's absolutely bucketing down and Martin I blame you! The rain clouds have definitely followed your card here!  Obviously your painting is just too realistic! I love it though, especially the bright of the lush grass against the shadow of the cloud.  

Martin I do hope you have had some sunny days since you painted this.  On the other hand sunny scenes produce far less dramatic, interesting paintings.  So in a way, I am glad it rained on you,...... I got to benefit with this super card!

What a fantastic painting of weather - and how appropriate as the weather recently has been really awful.

Not quite as awful as the eastern seaboard of the USA today mind you - as Hurricane Irene continues to barrel her way on up the coast!

I love the play of light on the field and the beautiful stormy sky. Another postcard I really wish was for me.

Martin's really shown a rainy sky in all its beauty - great clouds. And I love his humour - "hold it here!".

Like Robyn, I wish this was for me! I love how it appears both abstract and very realistic.
