Valley Rain by Claire Giordano, April 2019
Watercolor and Raindrops, 11" X 14"
Claire writes, "This is one of 35 paintings I created during my two week residency at the Andrews Experimental Forest. I began this painting of the valley after slowly hiking miles of gravel road turned into an obstacle course by fallen trees. In a rare gap in the rain I painted as much as I could, and just as I added the last swaths of color, the rain arrived again. The starburst patterns in the painting are each a raindrop that fell while painting and as I delicately cradled it under my umbrella while walking home."
