I call this series “Rain Drawings” because I started making them during a rainy stretch in Vermont. Taking a break from my normal labor-intensive, mark-by-mark approach to drawing, I figured out a way to make rain do the work. I put pieces of paper in the rain, covered them with leaves, twigs, and anything else around me, splashed some ink on the paper and later brought them inside to dry. After the rainy spell ended, I continued doing this technique without the help of the rain, adding water myself. When the rain drawings are dry, I draw on them with graphite or ink.
