Recently I’ve been feeling the need to show how it feels to make art, rather than concerning myself with making a pretty image. I've been working on a new series that includes this topic of letting go, this piece being one of them. "Rain" represents the calmness and peace that can come with making art and getting into the creative zone. The washes, textures and drip paint allow me to let go of control and to trust the process while being okay with vulnerability. It also represents washing away what I no longer need to hold on to.
