Red Rain was inspired by the all white walls in my Vermont studio. I began painting many surfaces with a red ground but was unable to go back into this piece. The more I sat with it, the more I realized it was perfect as is. The minimalism in this work allows for mental clarity. This piece is currently hung right beside my bed because I love living with it daily. The quiet mark-making in this piece creates a harmonic and contradictory gentleness in conjunction with the powerful use of red.
