Acid Rain

 was the latest word prompt for Arts in the Cards trade.
 what that word looks, feels, sounds like to you at the time is what was made visable
 and reduced to a small card and sent out to other artists.
this blue bubble photo is not one of them.
it is a eyeglass cleaner cloth borrowed from my DH from his last pair of glasses.
 and as good as any place to start as i am visual.
 also a good reminder that i get my eyes checked this week for sharper vision glasses!   

i started out with water/rain drops and the  idea that i see  colors in drops, which i do .
water running down a windsheld or window takes on shapes as did the paint i put on several pieces of cloth that i left out in the rain to make them dilute and as they dried on a slope,
the colors ran downhill.
of the 4 pieces i picked 3 that i quilted to repeat that rolling down effect  of drops.
 i used some metallic thread that broke (even with the metallic needle)  often .
 i was glad these were small pieces.
rain drops keep fallin' on my head.....
was the most sung  old song  as  worked  along  on  this challege.
what does rain inspire you in your imagination?
