Weekly Weather: Hail

For this round of Weekly Weather collages I decided to do another atlas as my base. However, the pages/signatures came apart from the binding so I’ll be doing each two page spread separately and when I come to the end of the year or when we start repeating the weather topics, I’ll bind them all together.

This weeks topic is Hail (pellets of frozen rain that fall in showers from cumulonimbus clouds).

Depictions of hail are not easy to find so I went with lots of diamonds cut from lots and lots of jewelry ads in magazines like Elle, Town & Country, and Vogue. The central ‘sun’ is reminiscent of how the sun can be shine one minute and it can hail the next!  I really wish the next hail storm would be diamonds!!
