Katrina, of course.

This was much more difficult than the tornado paintings, for some reason.  Seems like it needs to be far bigger, also (it’s only 8″x10″ and will be mounted on a larger sheet of baltic birch plywood and framed, just like the tornado paintings).

But not bad for a start. I may work on it some more; I don’t know…

We favor the simple expression of complex thought. We are for the large shape because it has the impact of the unequivocal. We wish to reassert the picture plane. We are for flat forms because they destroy illusion and reveal truth.
