|I just like to fill in a little background on how this
wonderful piece came about. The inspiration for
this piece goes all the way back to when I was a

was fortunate enough to spent a lot of time in the
halls of the Art Institute of Chicago.
The French impressionists became my favorite
artists and one of the paintings that I’m particularly
fond of is by
Paris Streets,Rainy Day, 1877

The one element of the project that teased my mind for a long time was how to make it rain and I finally came up with a solution and I’ll let you be the judge as to the result.
