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.

I imagine painting this again in oil, about four times as large, and really abstracting it away from the ‘image’ of a tornado — just abstract shapes of color and texture.

I hope you get a chance to see this painting up close and personal — it is full of beautiful little passages of paint.  Come to my studio for the East Austin Studio Tour this coming November or call me to make arrangements to see this in person.  Check my website for contact infoContact Marilyn

I constantly have to negotiate with my doubts.
