Artwork Interpretation: "Rainmen"

The anonymous figures on this barrel might be rising like water vapor, suspended as a mist, or falling like a heavy rain. The idea of "Rainmen" was influenced by Surrealist painter René Magritte, my favorite artist, whom I hope would find this homage as oddly humorous and alluring as I find his original to be.

"If you can interpret my painting, you are more fortunate than I am." - René Magritte
