ORA SWEET RAIN
"The Sweet Rain series is designed to ignite imagination and celebrate life. It signifies a raindrop’s journey from the clouds to the earth and its importance to the land and our lives. The ancient traditional Aboriginal symbol of rain is portrayed through my own contemporary artistic lens. I have designed the symbol to have a cup of delicate dots that surround just the bottom of each coloured stroke, in a cascading effect. The colour of each drop signifies a part of my life story and is applied in layers of fine art strokes. The colours hold a visual memory of the beautiful Australian landscapes through my eyes.
With my fascination with rain comes my ever-evolving exploration with colour. When colours are mixed and blended to form a multitude of shades there becomes choice.
Have you ever taken the time to really see the rain falling in all its beauty? To imagine it’s journey from the clouds to the earth. The beautiful colours that I have explored in my painting are reflective of this.
From the deep dark blues when the rain begins to fall, through to the lighter colours as it passes through and falls on Country. The long-shaped symbols represent the large droplets that are full and ready to burst as they cascade down to their resting place on our lands, filling our rivers and dams. This beautiful life source that we sometimes take for granted but cannot live without. As I continue my journey I give thanks to the rain as a sweet reminder of all the important things I cannot live without."
