Prayer for Raining Cats and Dogs

I chose to create this quilt because I was attracted to the saying, “Raining Cats and Dogs.” In my repertory of drawings I have many images of cats and dogs, plus here in California we are currently having a drought. So, I decided to make an artwork that would affirm the idea of literally raining cats and dogs as a humorous but sincere prayer for rain here in the Golden State. In my quilt, it’ s raining cats and dogs and the pet cats and dogs are looking out the windows at the cat and dog rain drops.
