Rain-Room

I really miss those crisp fall mornings, when you wake up and look outside and the leaves are dancing in the wind. There’s something about it, knowing that its cool outside, but being overwhelmed with a sense of warmth & coziness. The way the leaves crunch under your feet as you walk home. That grey-almost gloomy, but welcoming sky, just before an autumn rain. The way every room, smells of pumpkin or baked goods. The creepy movies on tv. It’s almost as if we enter an entirely different culture, with the way things around us shift in those autumn months. Oh, how I miss you, fall.

Phew, finally had some time to squeeze in a quick personal painting (freelance has been crazy)! I’ve wanted to do a rainy piece based on the Rain Room at LACMA for awhile now, so this one’s admittedly a total guilty pleasure for me, ha ha. 

Random International, Rain Room, 2012

tidbits of info: you will wait at least 2 hours. you may get wet if you walk in too fast (I totally did). Don’t wear black (I did). It’s fun watching others hesitate before entering, but once inside it’s a tad mediocre. If you get into MoMA for free and have friends you don’t mind standing in line with, do it. Take a cute (barf) photo with someone you like and then call it a day.

Zach was driving you home when the storm broke.

One minute the two of you were joking around as his music blasted from the speakers and wind blew messing up your hairstyles. Then, quick drops of water began falling from the sky, causing Zach to immediately put the convertible’s hardtop on.

You grew quiet as you took in the sight of the darkened sky and the raindrops hitting the windshield.

Zach took notice of your sudden mood change and turned the music volume down. “Everything okay?” He asked, shifting his gaze from the road for a few seconds to look at you.

Rain Room

Pitter Patter, Pitter Pit

To think I used to like the rain

Coolly running down my face

Obscuring my pain, if only for a bit

Soft thunder in the distance

And myself warm in someone’s arms


These memories are the rain room

A special place in my mind

For me it only pours here

And I am safe from her storms

I am at peace, I am one


Pitter Patter, Pitter Pit

Now I can’t stand the rain

A stinging reminder of my loss

A dampness on my mind

Hard lightning in the sky

And myself alone in the storm

i have two guesses who you are kind anon 

hell yes i do let’s go! idk if you’d call these “exciting” but those are the things that have been on my own summer bucket lists before. if anyone wants to add anything, please do! 

OUTSIDE AND TRAVEL

  • keep a travel journal!
  • send postcards to your friends (and maybe teachers you like, they’ll love it!)
  • try a new item of food!
  • explore some place you’ve never been to (doesn’t have to be far. maybe take a walk in a park you’ve never been to, or visit a museum!)
  • eat ice-cream and maybe try a new flavour (or make ice-cream yourself!)
  • try a new sport! for summer, try paddling/surfing/diving or if you’re not into water: tennis/golf/archery/outdoor yoga
  • watch the sunset 
  • have a BBQ
  • go to the beach (if you can) or to a lake
  • go to a concert
  • breathe in different kind of airs (sounds stupid, but i think it’s kinda cool. salty air at the seaside, fresh air after it rained, breezy air in the mountains, the smell of flowers on the fields…)
  • visit a place where one of your favourite books takes place (or where the author is from)
  • talk to someone in your target language
  • plant something in your garden! flowers, herbs, vegetables or a little tree
  • instead of taking a photo, draw or paint a scenery/landscape that you see
