Spring and summer bring back childhood memories. This painting in particular reminds me of a time I was visiting family that lived in the hills of Kentucky when a sudden storm came through the holler. Pots were set out to catch the rain and we all settled in under the porch to enjoy the cool breezes. When the rain had past the pots of water were gathered and we all washed our hair with the rain water. I thought it was a bit crazy at the time but came to understand that rain water is like a spa treatment for the hair. Memories of the old ways have made for, "A Painting Day".
