Carolyn is going dotty again! This was one of those careful, tedious paintings that was created with micro pencil strokes, minute blobs of masking fluid and a tiny brush. Of course all that work pays off in the end! I like the runny, wet in wet effect in the back to show the rain versus the tight, crystal clear droplets. That’s a strange phenomenon: that individually perfect orbs become something that obscures light and clarity when they mass as rain. I like the way the background runs upward, counter intuitively, to compliment the reflections that turn the world upside down.
