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.

Drawing and color are by no means two different things. As you paint, you draw . . . When color is at its richest, form is at its fullest.

  • Wonderful work Marilyn. The detail in the little box and crystals are amazing.
