Desert Rain God by Louisa McElwain

Desert Rain God depicts a desert storm in New Mexico just as a dramatic downpour is about to begin. The vibrant, blue background contrasts with the swollen, water‐filled cloud to create a focal point in the painting. The broad directional brushstroeks lead the viewer to the funnel of a dark storm casting a dramatic shadow over the landscape. In the foreground, McElwain paints green plants and the soft, sandy earth of the desert that awaits the rain. The viewer http://www.santanlearningcenter.com
