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

No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist.

  • Your painting reminds me of Georgia O’Keeffe’s flower paintings. Although your painting reminds me of her work, it does bring about a different kind of experience. Her flowers to me are beautiful. But they also seem reserved, formal, almost abstract, not romantic in anyway, not even alive but more like something plucked and then frozen in time. Your work has some of the same shapes, and yet the relationship of the shapes to each other is different and not at all formal like O’Keeffe’s. There is more movement in your painting, more energy, more aliveness. (I’m not taking your title into consideration.) To me, I’m looking deep into the heart of a living flower.
