It Rained That Day
'It Rained That Day' by Linda Bailey 18" Wide x 24" High x 1.5" Deep
This artwork was inspired by a Hebrews 6:7, “For ground that drinks the rain which often falls on it and brings forth vegetation useful to those for whose sake it is also tilled, receives a blessing from God". If we are faithful with what we’re given, we are blessing others with what we produce and we will be blessed by God for our faithfulness. After I finished painting it, I realized that this artwork also tells a story of memories forged and memories recalled. Sometimes sights or smells bring back a childhood memory, for instance. Past memories can include how you felt that day, who was with you, was this a vacation? How was the weather? So in this case, remembering that it rained that day brings it all back.
