this is beautiful and i can really see what you mean about rains. isn't it exciting when you do something purely abstract and people get your message? that's what i love about abstract expression! i like it!
maybe you should move to portland or seattle or england! are you very attached to living in AZ? i think the heat would kill me! i grew up in st. louis, tho, and it is crazy hot there for a long time, but the worst part is the humidity. at least you don't have that.
