Arlington, VA – In September, the Focus Gallery presents paintings by Nihal Kececi in an exhibit titled “Rain of my Soul.” The show explores both landscapes and cityscapes, as well as the artist’s transition between them. She notes: “After moving from Bethesda MD to Washington, DC, the theme in my paintings changed with my environment…in particular, I find pure beauty and magic in rain. The light that reflects off cars in traffic as raindrops hit the ground placed my mind and brush in a romantic place…I started to see the peace in chaos as light escaping the clouds gracefully hits the city.”
