Emergent Streams, canvas 34"X44"

Welcome to ArtRainmaker!

I'm an artist who creates paintings and drawings about the human figure surrounded by abstract swathes of color. Occasionally, the abstract areas become new ideas for paintings in themselves.In this blog, I will be "musing" about my latest artwork, how I derive my ideas, and my experiences during the process of creating.

The picture above is a painting called "Emergent Streams", a mixed media piece which was inspired by my trip to Santa Fe last spring. The colors of the light and the texture of the mountains worked their way into this piece!
