Our west coast summer was unusually hot and dry. In the midst, I was painting outside at the Gibsons Night Market in the late afternoon sun. We were all praying for and talking about rain and so these cool, inviting colours were forefront in my mind. I immediately called the work Raindance and further explored the ideas of dance and movement as I continued to work on it during the following weeks but the colour palette remained true to my initial inspiration – my desire for a West Coast rain shower.
