He was initially a watercolorist, specializing in rural and urban scences in the Midwest characterized by very strong color. (Shortly before his death, when asked by a clergyman to describe what he believed in, Rainey replied "Color.")  Later he originated a medium he called "petronexus" -- bas-relief paintings of wood, stone, jesso, and color.

Born 1914, Jackson, Mississippi, Rainey studied art at the School of the Chicago Art Institute (BFA, MFA).  He studied with F. Chapin (showing 500 of 1386 characters).
