"Zapping Through the Nighttime Sky", palette knife oil painting

 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!
