A Hope for Rain Completed

I finished this earlier this week, but never got around to posting it.
I live in northern Florida, and throughout the month of June, wild fires seemed endless. I would wake up in the morning and step outside my front door, only to be greeted by the nauseating odor of smoke. I would go to work, and the inside of the building would be hazy from the fires. I'd drive by miles of burned down trees or trees in the process of burning. It seemed like the fires would never cease - especially since there was no rain in sight. Heat lightening reined supreme as it continued to cause more burning.
That is, until two weeks ago when I was inspired to create this piece. We finally saw rain again. And not just a shower lasting five minutes. This was a thunderstorm.
I'd never been so happy for a power outage in my life.

This was also featured on Prismacolor's Facebook page. I pretty much fainted when I saw it show up on my wall.

And for those of you who are interested, I recently updated my professional portfolio page.
