Sometimes a Little Rain Must Fall

So last week's scrape painting has turned into this. I haven't titled it yet but the scene is from a Chinese cinema I watched a couple of years ago called "A Long Road Home" (I think - if memory hasn't faded completely).

I only have a minute to write today - a friend from my high school is coming for a week's visit and I've got to go to the airport to pick her up. On Saturday I'll be inviting some of my high school alumni living in the DFW area to come to my house and meet her and have a little mini-Zama High School reunion. This is so incredible that we still keep in touch and that I've found a few of my alums in the area. Zama High School is a Department of Defense school at Camp Zama, Japan....yessssss, waaaaay over there!! I have a couple of artist friends who visit and link with my blog who also went to my high school, Sheila Tajima and Hellenne Vermillion. The world is certainly a small place!
Go - Trojans!

If this is the same movie I saw, you've captured the feeling exactly. Is it the movie about the young girl who waits for her teacher boyfriend in the snow and the bowl that breaks and is repaired? Beautiful painting.
