Transformations: The Struggle to Create

When I paint, I frequently have only a very vague idea or sometimes -- no idea at all -- of what I am searching for in the new work.  I start somewhere, and often, the finished piece is so far away from where it started, it's unrecognizable.  One of my favorite things about working this way is that I discover things -- such as shapes and images -- that I just couldn't invent.

Tornado Paintings: My Interview on the Weather Channel

My Interview on the Weather Channel aired this past Monday.  I think they did a very nice job with it. You can view the video on the Weather Channel website. It's called "She paints tornadoes with a twist."

The picture must all come out of the artist’s inside… It is the image that lives in the consciousness, alive like a vision, but unknown.
