Tornado Paintings: My Interview on the Weather Channel

My Interview on the Weather Channel aired this past Monday.  I think they did a very nice job with it.

See it on the Weather Channel website (I’m after the 30-second commercial):view my Interview on the Weather Channel

And here are two images of the painting you see me creating in this interview; it took about another week to complete this painting:

    Congratulations. Your interview, your art, the story were fantastic. I also really liked watching how you create. I lived in the Dallas area and now live in Florida and have been through tornado clean up, including my backyard. Whenever we would see or will see the green sky we run for cover, knowing what that means. Your pieces photographed so well, hope this stirs up lots of interest.

    Your work is beautiful, Marilyn. I've lived in Illinois my entire life and tornadoes are a scary fact of life here. Best of luck with your goal of a painting in the White House! ~Denise – also an encaustic painter

The painter has to unlearn the habit of thinking that things seem to have the colour which common sense says they ‘really’ have, and to learn the habit of seeing things as they appear.

  • You should be an entertainment writer too. ;) Before I read the ‘unfinished’ statement I was thinking it’s ‘Under stated’ not a criticism just an option on style. I wondered if painting facial detail intimidated you ? Yet I believe you may have intended to add facial expression, although having none is a statement in itself. The tonal value overall is excellent and it almost reminds me of a more relaxed David Hockney. More fun, freer and there was me thinking the figure was wearing a baseball cap backwards. Well it was amusing to hear scholars debate your scarf. Too funny.
