:iconthesmallwonder: Some thoughts from Katie (thesmallwonder)

Spring has sprung and April showers have started raining down here at HQ.

Winter rain makes me want to crawl back into bed, get a hot cup of coco, and read a book all day. But there’s something different about April showers...

Maybe it’s because it’s less cold outside, or that the days are longer, but springtime rain makes me want to play in puddles.I want to go outside and smell the fresh air, and I just feel rejuvenated. Spring is a time for me to dust off old projects and start new ones. Forget New Years, April's when I get inspired!

I love the rain! Spring inspires me alot, the majority of the art I have is based on water or spring or new life.

Love to play in the rain - used to run around barefoot in the spring, on the wet, mossy grass, racing the dog around the barn - and usually took a slide and got soaked like a slip'n'slide at least once, lol! :D

I head out onto our covered porch and alternate between drinking lemonade, and running into the rain XD

As a new photographer I love spring for its new birth in everything around me. From the tiny little wild flowers to the big oak tree's. I love watching which ones start budding early and which ones take a bit longer. Before I got into photography, spring ment winter was finally over. But now, its a new season with new photo ops to do. Each season has its own reasons to love it even

Do you play in the rain?

I don't play in the rain unfortunately,but I usually walk through it,watch it from inside,or sit outside in the rain and gaze out into the street/forest/other form of landscape.

Does spring inspire you?

Hmm,what a question.Well,I suppose it can at times,but it all depends on what I'm drawing:when I draw flowers or anything botanical,for example,I think of pinks,greens,and other colours often associated with spring to use when colouring them.

Ahhhhh, spring. The time when I can go out on the porch, have a glass of juice, and just draw. :D

I love the rain. I'll going into my woods and sit and hear the raindrops falling from leaf to leaf. If its a light shower then the birds will come out and sing to each other and their songs echo back and forth in the lush greenness. The earth repays the sky for its rain with the musty smell of wet leaves and the freshness of flowers.
I love the nights of storms. I love how the house shakes with every thunder clap and my room fills with a brilliant light from the lightning flashes. The sounds of wind driving the rain into my window lull me to sleep.

(I was just going to put " I love the rain" but it got away from me. Oops.)

i love the smell of rain and i love to play in it. spring is an amzing time of year full of new life and its beautiful. too bad the ecosystem has gone to crap and the springs are nuthin but jumps from hot summer days to cold autumn days. :/
