Church's goal is to brighten up those rainy days.

"When I think of someone walking in the rain, I think of their head down with uncomfortable body posture," the 22-year-old told BuzzFeed News. "Just sort of an uncommon, anxious state."

"I'm hoping putting a positive or clever message or something beautiful on the sidewalk that wasn't there yesterday will take [people] out of their routine and make them feel a positive emotion," Church said.

Right now, there are between 25 and 30 Rainworks throughout Seattle. Each piece lasts anywhere from four months to a year.

Church plans to keep making more, both commissioned and not. He's also working toward releasing educational materials so aspiring artists in other cities can follow suit.

"We’d have a global Rainworks map so that anyone in the world can go looking for them," Church said.
