Rain Dance Painting

This painting is one of a series of self-portraits that parallel personal experiences in my life.

"Rain Dance" is about how we can take challenges in life and turn them around into a positive force, causing a refreshing, peaceful, hopeful, laughter.

Each rain drop is made of foil, which, when walking across the painting, creates a reflection that follows the viewer. This effects is similar to the reflection of lightning against real rain!
