When I was a young child growing up in southern Wisconsin, we were very fortunate to have not one, but two full-time art teachers in my elementary school. Both women were gentle, sweet souls who nurtured my earliest interest in all things art, whether it was crayons and scratchboard, tempera painting, or clay. Indeed, I drew high praise for how I held a brush "like a pencil."

From that earliest beginning, I grew up with a sincere belief that real artists render things exactly, almost photo realistically. But as I've progressed in my career as an artist, I've come to realize that this is not necessarily so, and I find myself becoming more interested in abstraction. Heck, even Pablo Picasso was an accomplished draftsman by the time he was 17. Many art historians will tell you that he broke off into his Cubist movement and subsequent forms of expression because he was so bored with rote rendering by that young age.

This growing interest in abstraction is why rainy day subjects in the city hold so much appeal for me. I can get lost in the colors, the reflections, and the overall mood of a subject while anchored in a representational ocean.
