Born in Jackson, MS, he grew up in Chicago, and attended the Chicago Art Institute, studying under F. Chapin and B. Anisfield and receiving B.F.A. and M.F.A. Degrees. Initially a watercolorist, Rainey specialized in rural and urban scenes in the Midwest characterized by very strong color. His early work also included lithography. Later he originated a medium he called "petronexus" -- bas-relief paintings of wood, stone, jesso, and color. Rainey signed his works "Reni", a play on the name of Italian Baroque painter Guido Reni. Among Rainey's many exhibits and prizes were Northwest Print Makers 1945 (prize), Canton Art Institute 1946 (prize), Art Institute of Chicago 1938, 1940, 1942, 1944, 1946, Providence Art Club 1945, Massillon Museum 1945, Canton Art Institute 1946 (one-man show).
