A turn is a turn, even if it's a round

Today was rainy. It's still rainy. Light enough to notice it's daytime.. but dark and gloomy and definitely the onset of Autumn. I like Autumn..but not in the city. Outside the urban..even suburban areas, the trees change, the animals are a bit more active, scurrying to finish winter preparations..there's a change in the world, and you can smell it in the air. The world is about to turn an old familiar corner, into hibernation and cold.

I had thought about doing a gray, depressing rainy picture..but then I thought..naw, the day's already gloomy enough. Let's go with some a-typical `water colours`.. blues and greens.. airbrush them against a deep-gold background with some flecked grey, and some scraping-tool rain gashes against an ocean-depth sky. Sometimes, in a really good storm, you can look into the sky and see sheets of water being whipped in waves through the air as the storm barrels through. It always fascinates me to see what is thought of as one-domain's ownership being used in like-manner in another's.. such as the waves of the sea, curling, waving.. but in a storm, rain drops being whipped across the air hard enough that they form their own aerial waves.
