Rain calls her books Romances with an Edge. GOLDEN CHAINS is one of many books each with aspects of Rain's creative life. This one is from her art involvement. Rain is also a sculptress like her main character, Ravine. In GOLDEN CHAINS Rain's philosophy of art pretaining to art education and business is woven into a suspenseful, entertaining murder mystery/love story set on a present day imaginary, small college campus in Portland, Oregon.
In order to read her book, I downloaded Kindle for PC's found through a Google search. I purchased the book from an Amazon link on Rain Truaxes' web site .

- The idea for COLOR BRIDGES came from many sources. Portland State College 1962,Professor Frederick Heidel's first painting assignment was to make a grid and explore mixing colors to arrange on the grid to see how they would look. Moving these painted pieces of paper on different backgrounds bring back 4 years of studying painting with Heidel. Each arrangement I have made are like his assignments. They have a goal of basics while allowing the emotions freedom. Another source was Professor Mary MacIntire at Western Washington University who was a member of Fiber Design and I had the honor of photographing for a statement about her process. She used to move around pieces of colored paper to design her fiber works.
