My painting depicts one of those days when the sky is evenly overcast and the air is still and a little humid as the warm days of sunshine give way to a slightly cooler feel, maybe after the occasional passing shower. Colours are a little more sombre. One of those days where one now knows for sure that, if the hot sun does make its presence felt again this year, it will probably be only a fleeting visit.
There is a possibly even more famous song lyric:
“Oh, it's a long, long while
From May to December
But the days grow short
When you reach September”.
“September in the Rain” Harry Warren and Al Dubin.
“September Song” Kurt Weill lyrics Maxwell Anderson.
