“I have a weakness I scarcely dare to avow. [It] consists in preferring rather mournful aspects to all others, low skies, solitary plains, discreet in hue, where each tuft of grass plays it’s little tune to the indolent breath of the wind of midday… I wait impatiently for the bad weather to come, and I am already negotiating with a seller of umbrellas. I assure you that bad weather has more life than good.”

-Pierre Puvis De Chavannes

Art lives everywhere. I don’t think that we have to wait for rainy days to make art however, I think that it’s finding art in rainy days that is just as important as finding art in the joyous days.
