New Tornado Paintings

I have completed two new tornado paintings; one was the one I started a few weeks ago while being interviewed for a Weather Channel segment about my tornado paintings.  It's changed a lot since it was filmed in progress (final version above; first version below).

More New Work for War-Artists Respond Exhibit

"What Have We Become?" | 9 Digital Prints with Encaustic on Masonite, with Chain Links | 37" x 34" | © 2007 Marilyn Fenn -- This piece uses iconic media images as image transfers encased in wax, tying a number of images together into a large piece. I wanted to pick some of the most recognizable images that almost anyone would know; images that say something about how we as a human race treat each other.

New Atomic Bomb Painting: Castle Romeo

New Atomic Bomb Paintings

“Operation Bravo” | Encaustic on Plexiglas | 12" x 12" | © 2007 Marilyn Fenn -- I had wanted to complete more of my planned large series of atomic bomb paintings done in time to apply to a local show dealing with war.  I've got only 5 done now, and these last two need a little tweaking, but for now, here they are:

New Work: My First Hurricane Painting

"Hurricane Katrina” | Encaustic on Masonite | 8″ x 10″ | © 2007 Marilyn Fenn -- Katrina, of course. This was much more difficult than the tornado paintings, for some reason.  But not bad for a start. I may work on it some more; I don't know...

New Work: Mega Tornado!

"Tornado - Stoughton, WI - August 18, 2006” | Encaustic on Masonite | 8″ x 10″ | © 2007 Marilyn Fenn -- I actually started this one prior to the one in the previous post (below). This was the first of the tornado paintings painted into a rough and very absorbent watercolor paper mounted on Masonite.

New Work: Tornado Over a Lake

“Tornado - Big Pine Key, FL - April 14, 2005” | Encaustic on Masonite | 8″ x 10″ | © 2007 Marilyn Fenn -- You can see I've gotten comfortable with the encaustic process again, as this little painting (which I love), has gotten more away from abstraction than the three previous ones (below).

New Work: A White Tornado

“Tornado - Erie, KS - November 27, 2005” | Encaustic on Masonite | 8″ x 10″ | © 2007 Marilyn Fenn -- Here's another -- a really huge tornado. I love how the diagonal lines worked out in this piece. It is again, one of those paintings that's truly paint first and an image second.

I was blessed with a birth and a death and I guess I just want some say in between.
