Interview with the Weather Channel

“Most storm chasers use a camera.”

— a guest at one of my studio tours

I have some exciting news! I was interviewed last week by the Weather Channel. They plan to air a little feature on my paintings of tornadoes sometime in April at the start of tornado season. The local cameraman who works for TWC came to my house/studio, set up lights and interviewed me about my paintings and why I paint tornadoes, and also shot footage of me starting a new tornado painting to demonstrate my process.

The interview took place just as we were finishing a 4-month remodeling project which had completely taken over our house and my studio, so we had to clean up the construction zone we had been living in, finish painting some walls and woodwork, hang window shades and curtains in my studio, clean house, AND I had to frame and hang 12 of the 14 paintings I wanted to display for the interview. Got everything done with a few hours left over to sleep.

I’ll post more information when I find out when (and if) the segment will air.  😀

I’ll also post the newest tornado paintings as soon as I finish them.  Here’s an intermediate version of the painting that I began in The Weather Channel segment:

For one thing, I want gesture-any kind of gesture, all kinds of gesture–gentle or brutal, joyous or tragic; the gesture of space soaring, sinking, streaming, whirling; the gestures of light flowing or spurting through color. I see everything as possessing or possessed by gesture. I’ve often thought of my paintings as having an axis around which everything revolves.
