I love storms. I am awed by nature and it’s beauty. Storms are so powerful, and are truly sublime. Yesterday, driving home from Georgia, I drove through a supercell thunderstorm. It stretched from Columbia, South Carolina, to Charlotte, North Carolina. The winds whipped my truck, and caused the trees to dance before it. Lightning spread like spiderwebs across the sky. Rain pounded down. The clouds were in the most interesting shapes, like scallops, and castles, and all kinds of stuff, moving down. On the edges, the sun shining through made the world bright orange. It was beautiful, and scary.
This painting is large, to increase visual experience. It is about a strong storm, and the way it interacts with man made things. I love storms, and the power of nature, especially in wetter, humid climates.
