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.

As creators it is imperative to keep your own council, and choose friends who can be uplifting in general, not only about art. Choosing to be positive may not pay the bills directly, but it does free up energy so you can create things that do.
