Last year I was driving through the desert during monsoon season and it was amazing to drive into these heavy sheets of rain. Just as quickly as they started, they’d be over as we continued toward our destination.
Human nature can be like the weather, sometimes a human can bring a bright, sunny day with blue skies. Sometimes we can bring a ravaging monsoon.
I like to think the woman portrayed in my painting is calm and hard-working, keeping a steady watch over her family and way of life. But, if one were to mess with her or her family or her way of life, she could become that ferocious storm.
Art for me has always been a family affair. I grew up painting beside my dad, helping him with his modeling sessions and going to art shows together. Now, my kids paint beside me, come with me to most of my art shows and help me with my modeling sessions. In this particular case, I had two of my teenage daughters stand on barstools above my model. They sprinkled warm water from above so I was able to study the way the droplets of water fell across her face and arms. My model was such a trooper during this shoot. She was so patient and said “anything for the art!”.
I’m excited for this oil painting. Painting the rain was such a fun artistic exploration and painting people larger than life is always a thrill. – Jeremy Winborg
