It's not a secret that I am a fan of rain. Yesterday was a non-stop bucket fest, and it got me daydreaming about creating a cozy space. In my next home, I plan to dedicate a wall to art that celebrates the wettest of weathers. Please join me as I take you on a virtual tour of which prints I'd include in my Rain Gallery. If it's not currently raining where you are, might I suggest you click here for simulating the proper mood to browse such a collection? Ok, got the sound effects—real or simulated? Let's dance. In the representational puddles.
|Rainy long walk, by holli|
I'm a sucker for images of a moody/pensive/solemn girl and her creature. Add in some raindrops? Sold.
|Out of the Rain, by blackoutwell|
Foxes seeking and sharing protection under a stripey umbrella? Get out!
|Rainy Day, by Ashley Percival|
More anthropomorphism? Gorgeous sweaters and colorful eyewear that I want to wear? I can't take it!
|rain drops, by lulubeaucoup|
Great color and composition. I'd use the simple drop images to break up my obsession with whimsical animal scenes. ;)
|The Rain, by Aeropagita Prints|
|Take Shelter, by Ashley G|
Are you beginning to recognize the aesthetic I'm drawn to? The funny thing is, I didn't even have to conduct a search for "rain". All of these prints are from my favorite artists' shops I
stalk follow on Etsy. Apparently people with good taste are inspired by rain. ;)
|Let's Stay Home, by Ashley G|
That's some pretty rain right there, don't you think?
|One of Those Days, by Ashley G|
Klimt-like, no? Ashley G's illustrations are stunning. I own two of her prints that are non-rain related, and I adore them.*
|Monsieur I, by Cosas Mínimas|
Blanca Gómez is another favorite. Her colors slay me.
|Mademoiselle under the rain, by Cosas Mínimas|
I'd pair this gal with this guy (↓). Back to back.
|Monsieur under the rain, by Cosas Mínimas|
Seeing all these prints stacked here has me imagining various arrangements and cluster formations. So fun to work around a theme. If you were curating a collection of prints on a particular theme, which would you choose?
Thanks for touring my make-believe Rain Gallery, friends. I hope you are able to enjoy the sounds and sights of spring rain from a cozy vantage point.
p.s. Wouldn't cloud lanterns hanging above the Rain Gallery suit the theme delightfully?
