Weekend Reading 8.16.20

We had the wildest rainstorm last night, complete with thunder and a big lightning show. Summer thunderstorms are uncommon in California, so it was a rare treat for nature to show up in such a powerful way. I stood outside my front door at 4 in the morning and watched it for twenty minutes. I love summer rain storms. I’ve experienced them in the desert, on the east coast, and in Europe so last night’s spectacle reminded me of those times. Are you also a fan of summer thunder storms?

I’ve spent the last few days updating the Restless Art website. I gave the home page a refresh, updated a lot of the imagery, and reorganized the art by category. I also launched a Printed + Shipped service for those who want art shipped to their door on high quality, archival matte paper! All of the Printed + Shipped art includes taxes and shipping. Let me know if there’s a particular print you’d like to see show up there, I can always create a custom listing. 🙂
