Cynics wrap up tighter in their raincoats and hide behind the black fabric of their umbrellas. Dreamers sit on the windowsill with a cup of fragrant coffee. Lovers enjoy holding hands and strolling under warm drops of summer sprinkle. Creative people find their inspiration in vague streams on the wet glass and muffled tapping against the roof. It is a perfect time for a light melancholy when the weather seems to be crying with you. And most of us, regardless of our social status and occupation, believe that any rain will end with vibrant rainbow symbolizing a new better start. This marvelous painting by Leonid Afremov seems to incorporate every of these moods.
