About the artwork:
The beauty of summer rain, gently coming down from the sky. Water, movement, blue, white. Here are the raindrops of nature, born into existence from the breath of life. Life falling down, onto the land, onto the face of a person, and into the rivers. Life meeting life. Enjoy this beautiful abstract work of nature.
About the artist:
“I love opening to the expansive creative energy of the unknown and have a painting evolve from this space. Such joy and peace is revealed. I am thankful when I have created an artwork from this space and it is received by another.”
