In Rainbows

Lots of friends on Facebook had posted their own shots of rainbows that flashed across the sky here in LA after the rains earlier this week. I have to say I found Dina Juntila's, "shes a rainbow" the most intriguing. It inspired me to post other images by artists also inspired by the colors of the rainbow.

I want one of each!
