Desolate Farmhouse

The days are hot and dry under the dusty sky on a farm north of Salinas in California.
The parched land is wailing and waiting for rain that never came for the last several years.

The Wild Side of Water

Come Monsoon, the Karimala river begins roaring down the hills with newfound vigor and excitement.
As the torrential rains fall onto the hilltops and into the ravines, it gathers speed with unpredictable force.
Medium: Watercolor | Paper: Heavy bond 

On a wintry morning hardly anyone would venture to walk on slushy, slippery roads,
let alone along the frozen shores of a lake. But then, there are a few whose determination
to stick to their daily routine is not affected by the acts of nature.
This could be one of those intrepid souls who has found comfort in the frigid silence of a lake.
