California has been the recipient of an Atmospheric River this week. In my attempt to produce something constructive, and because I have always loved playing with water, I placed pieces of paper outside and allowed the rain to determine the water pattern. I then brought the paper into the studio and driped watercolor on it, allowing the paint to follow the raindrops forms. These Atmospheric River paintings are the result. They are reminiscent of looking up at leaves in the trees. It is so fascinating how allowing for one natural process constructs images that are familiar of another.
