Oil and Cold Wax on Ampersand 2" cradled panel
Lightning is my second piece going to Kerrville for the Hot Wax/Cold Wax Exhibition.
Not often do I feel like my paintings are influenced by what is going on in my life but I was working on this piece when the tornadoes came through Garland and Rowlett. I was actually watching them out the windows in my house. It was an amazing thing to see and soon after that that suddenly I felt the need to put a jagged arcing pattern on this painting. Was I influenced by the storms? I don't really know that. But I do know this painting is dramatic. I hope you like it.
