This magical piece was created in one evening. It is one of the creations that come along so rarely, when I have an urge to paint but no fixed idea of what to create, and then a feeling emerges and I try to define the feeling. It was a magical, rainy night, and the music in my studio carried me away.
I began with the background color, a dark grey~green hue. Then I sprinkled raindrops of light pastel on the surface. In thinking of the way rain falls, I tried a new technique to streak the raindrops, and this added movement to the rain. Then I envisioned a dancing gray horse. The ground was invisible, the horse was suspended in the rain. He tossed his head in an expression of play.
"Raindance" reminds me of what is possible when I allow myself to experience the journey rather than the destination.
"What would it feel like
to be wet and wonderful;
at one with the Earth
and her rhythms.
To consider the rain a miracle
rather than a nuisance.
bringer of life and laughter."
