Live Riveted /Airstream Life / Raindrop Canvas

Living in an Airstream lends itself to many opportunities for art making! I have discovered that not only does this “silver bullet” love being the primary subject matter of my photos, but she also offers her riveted aluminum siding as a free canvas for nature to paint upon!

It is monsoon season and the rainstorms are rolling in. Afternoons filled with thunderous lightening storms producing big water filled drops causing flash flood warnings to marquee across t.v. screens are frequent. Being inside the bullet sounds like someone is dumping a giant bucket full of golf balls directly overhead, repeatedly.

As quickly as the storms roll in, they roll out. They Leave behind fairytale painted skies and raindrops clinging for life on their new canvas.  The stream itself mirrors the look of some weather channel storm chaser vehicle…or even, at times, an alien spacecraft.

All worthy of documentation!
