Weather Happening, Study I. Oil on 8″x8″ canvas panel board. (Available at Daily Paintworks: $55.00)
I grew up in Northwestern Illinois, and I will always have images of “weather happening” stuck in my head. In elementary school, tornado drills were as normal as fire drills. At our house, it wasn’t unusual to go hang out in the basement for a bit “just in case.” Painting storm clouds is a way for me to get some of these images out of my head.
