A Rainy Day through a Window

Julie Schaefer's avatar Julie Schaefer

My entry for ArtPrize 2017 is titled “A Rainy Day Through a Window”. It was inspired by digital photography captured with my cell phone on rainy days while touring New Zealand. The dreamy palette totally stimulated my senses with mystical horizons, golden grasslands, and the veins of nature - gushing, cascading, roaring, and dancing - while engaging both heaven and earth. The beautiful day produced rainbows and blue skies. This composition is a throw-back to my design days when a teacher asked me “What is beauty?” My reply was, “A Rainy Day Through a Window.” Looking back 31 years later, I was touched by the words I had written. It was as if I had looked into my crystal ball; “with the words flowing river flow to your dream, believe in your heart, believe in your soul, and believe where the rainbow never ends in the passion pit called New Zealand”. It has truly been an incredible journey to come full circle!
