Story: 

The white cross-hatching represents fresh clouds. The multicoloured dotting is the sun rays in all their beautiful glory shimmering between the clouds with a background of silver-grey tones like an overcast sky forming. A feeling of the start of the wet season, the first showers: sun showers, clouds, rainbows, cool breeze with the smell of the first rains. Steam coming off the dirt and roads, everything coming to life – the trees, grass, sounds of the frogs. A coming together to form something greater.


The first rains

 

The end and beginning

 

An in-between place

 

Where death and birth dance in the winds and drops of transformation fall upon us

 

Where gloom is met with excitement and darkness met with anticipation for the first note of the thundering orchestra to play

 

As they say, in order to see the rainbow it first must rain

 

And so it does

 

Washing away all that has been and clearing space for new life

 

Rainbows remind us of the beauty of impermanence as they paint our world in wonder

 

What a magical thing

 

The first rains
