Trying to Find the Sun
My CLmooc friends doodle every day.
My #clmooc #MayDoodle for #makingarteveryday began as after a response for the Daily Create—to share “Weather and Music.” I shared a poet, John Fogerty, and his family singing “Who’ll Stop the Rain” — “a song for the stormy times of today’s world- “clouds of mystery pourin’ confusion on the ground;” as we are, “trying to find the sun.” I thought it needed a bit of art. 🙂
It’s another Este Macleod’s #coloricombo and #estemacleodclass for prompt 21 using only the limited colors provided: ocean, melon, petrol blue, parchment
I followed Jennifer Nichol’s Swirly Brush pattern process with studio and technical pen to create two brushes: the raindrop pattern and a sun stamp. Then I added zen doodles to the sun and a reflection on each raindrop with the syrup brush. I also added a couple layers of one of Jen’s repeating texture patterns. #ipardartwithjennifernichols
Today’s Daily Create — #ds106 @ds106dc #tdc3785 is to share “The Weather and Music.” I shared:
A poet, John Fogerty, and his family sing “Who’ll Stop the Rain” — “clouds of mystery pourin’ confusion on the ground;” a song for the stormy times of today’s world; and we, trying to find the sunJohn Fogarty and Family on YouTube

Later in the Day
In the evening I checked my twitter feed. I’m just so depressed that more people are shot dead with a gun. “And I wonder, still I wonder, Who’ll stop the rain?”
The song is just too relevant for today’s evil GOP who refuse to consider the lives of everyone, and refuse sensible legislation and policy for weapons— weapons meant to kill people.
Freedom is being able to go to the grocery store without being shot.
Freedom is being able to go to school without being shot.
Freedom is being able to live with the fear of being shot.
As Chris Murphy of CT says, “What are we doing?”
“Good men through the ages, trying to find the sun.”
