Views From Cars in the Rain

Jill Harness

Artist Gregory Thielker's paintings look just like the view from a car window during rain. "These paintings became a way to explore how driving in weather changes the views outside the car as well how the driving experience informs our basic interpretation of environment," Thielker explained.

Because the images lack certain details that make it difficult to discern the setting outside the car, the paintings seem relatable to anyone who's ever driven somewhere on a particularly rainy day.
