Living in Colorado is a meteorological adventure, a weather puzzle. As you must know, we have had "biblical", monumental flooding recently, plus wildfires not only this year but last year. In 1997, a friend of ours had to swim for her life, along with her young son. It simply is never dull around here!
Earlier in the spring, we seemed to be having a lot of thunderstorms, complete with incredible lightning, of course. I started mulling this over -- what if I try to paint the sky when it's uproarious, zipping with electricity, zapping toward the earth. This is the first in a series of fun: lightning storms painted with palette knife and oil. They are a creative and artistic effort to convey emotion, not a literal one, my imagination was involved here, not necessarily realism. I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed painting them! What a blast!
