Beautiful Rain Paintings!

   Good morning!  I'm still getting familiar with the new Blogger format since Google has now taken over Blogger.  I'm still learning how to navigate this site, and from feedback from my "followers" listed on this site, none of them have been notified about my new postings. Great!  I'm still posting as a personal journal!
  If anyone knows how to fix this, please let me know. I guess Google is also taking over Youtube.  Baaahaahaa!  Soon they will own the world!  It makes you wonder about our government's non-monopoly laws?  Hmmm!
    I'm going to take a second here to reintroduce myself and to tell you what I'm currently working on.
I am a Fine Artist (I have a BFA in Design from CCA), a Recording Artist (5 CDs Published), a Professional Musician (25 years or more playing paid bass gigs/tours), and a Business Owner (Private Music Teaching Lessons - I teach: Piano, Violin, Guitar, Bass, Ukulele, and Voice).  Currently I finished a new series of 'Rain Paintings' in April, which turned out beautiful!

'Rain Paintings' - My 'Rain Paintings' take a little over a month to manifest.  They are created with the help of 'Mother Nature'.  I reapplied acrylic paint about 10 different times over a six week time period to canvases that were laid flat on the cement area in the back of my house.  During this time period from March through April 2014, here in the Seattle area we received an enormous amount of rain.  Several times after I applied new paint a downpour would occur and wash all the new paint away.  Arrgh, back to square one!
It was exciting to peer out the glass of my back door, when it was raining, to see how the paintings were evolving.  My son created this youtube slide show for me which features a section from my solo piano song, Inanna's Dream. 'Rain Paintings' - Youtube.
Michael, my son, and I are also working on editing a documentary short video which shows me creating my rain paintings.

I'm offering 10% off all of my art till the end of August.

I'm thinking of having a Jam/Art open studio party August 23rd.  Let me know what you think?

Thanks again for reading, looking and listening, and ignoring grammatical errors since I can't see clearly in the mornings (or any other time really - lol).

Have a nice day!
