Arthur Wesley Dow. Summer

This image is on my desk:

Rain in May. Dow

It’s a colour woodcut from 1905 by the American artist Arthur Wesley Dow (1857-1922). The title is Rain in May and I think it is very beautiful with its soft nuances and summer atmosphere. Wouldn’t it be nice to paint the walls of your home in those douce colours?

When searching for an online version of it I also found this:

Very summerly too. So… enjoy the long evenings, the sun, the trips to the sea, the strawberries, and the time off. At least that’s what I will be doing the next couple of weeks.
