Odd jobs -

"The Rainmaker"

"... from the north, crossing a failed field of dusty stubble,
came the rainmaker, making his way to a croppers' shack ..."

That's quite an odd job, indeed! No need for that handy man right now.

He looks sad, though, maybe he can make a small visit during the night?

John:
It appears that the rainmaker got earlier still! :)

SusuPetal:
Too much rain there already, Susu? I always thought that a perfect good weather solution would be to have just a few hours of rain in the middle of the night.

Very cool! This is super. Evocative!

I have a rainmaker one, too. Mine has his hands up, over his head.

I'll see if I can find it--it resonates with this one.

First, thanks for the enthusiastic comment. I have to admit that yours certainly does resonate with this one ... I like both but prefer the top one. :D

Sometimes - like when looking on this rainmaker - I have the feeling that you and Susu are inspiring each other!

I can't speak for Susu, but all of you are an inspiration to me. If any of my work inspires some of you, then I've accomplished another important task as an artist. :)

One of my favorites. Love the colors and the composition. And the title too!

Yes, all those puffs of dandelion, milkweed and cattail seed blowing everywhere ... summer snow!
