Wow! What an apt description of childhood. A simple but great idea. Simple ideas are always the greatest anyway.

Really beautiful memory!!!

Paula said...

Original interpretation and realization. Love the warm color of the paper boat and the dark drops.

Katili said...

Amazing how this paperboat is actually picturing the rainy day to my mind. The colours you used make it look like it's made of a paper that has been at the attick for 30 years in grandmothers notebook. Great piece.

miragee said...

I like the light in this photo. It gives a very nostalgic feeling. The perspective is awesome. It creates a distance between the past and the present.

georg said...

very poetic, maybee a little overwhelming to be a paperboat in rain? It made me think a lot - and that's great!

Rose said...

Thats perfect abt childhood..

Caitlin said...

Great take on the topic, well done! Nice to see something a little bit different.

SouthernZonie said...

Yes, my childhood is long gone!!!!, but this does take me back. Nice work.

AnastasiaC said...

as a kid I loved when adults would make paperboats for me and now as a mum I make them for my boys - great idea!!!

melanienyc said...

this is really cool, what a fantastic idea.

Ian T. said...

A well-thought out concept and realisation. The light seems to suggest a Sun shower, rather than a downpour.
