Windy – watercolor
I’m not sure what is going on around the rest of the world, but I know right here at my house, IT IS WINDY! It seems like this entire month has been blowing and blowing hard. We had straight line winds the other day sustaining at 45mph and others in the area were up to 95mph, not gust sustaining winds, it didn’t last long, but long enough to do a lot of damage. I know that most of the midwest and south, have been going through the same storms and winds, killing so many people. So, I starting painting last night, and all I had was a photo of purple flowers, but not wanting to do the same old purple flower painting, I decided to try to capture them in a stormy condition. The scanning isn’t the best, it washed out some of the background, but at least this will give you an idea of my attempt. I hope all stays safe this stormy season, and please take storms serious. A F3-F4 (210 mph winds) tornado came through no more than a 1/2 mile from where our new house sets (wasn’t built there yet) in 2005, and killing 25 people including kids. So, be safe, be smart, and take care!
