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.

  • The swirls of cloud look so good in encaustic. Probably much better in person too where you can see the depth of the medium that photos can rarely capture. Great drama!
