This image came into my mind while I was reading John 1. It is also inspired by John Updike's quote “Rain is grace; rain is the sky condescending to the earth; without rain, there would be no life.”
I grew up on a farm in a small coastal city in New Zealand, surrounded by green paddocks, trees and animals with Mount Taranaki as my backdrop. I have always delighted in nature and the act of creating; the two are deeply connected for me. I relish in finding glimpses of beauty in my daily life and this is what I hope to capture in my paintings.
