I’m not sure where I found the image for this painting, and I really can’t imagine anyone being brave or crazy enough to stand under a tornado and take a photograph.

But it’s a fascinating image, and here’s my take on it.  I love how this painting, like the one I did just before this, straddles that space between abstraction and representation.

You can look at a picture for a week and never think of it again. You can also look at a picture for a second and think of it all your life.

  • Lovely and fresh and you’ve captured the light. It has such a lovely ‘summer morning’ feel to it.
