Three progress shots of the tornado I’ve been working on this weekend. I’m afraid it looked better at the beginning than it does now. Back to work! #gouachelandscape #gouachepainting #tornadoes #tornadoseries #artventuresgallery #arkansas #artistsoninstagram #painting #artistsofnwa #fayettevillear

10” x 14” gouache and metallic pigments on Arches %100 rag paper I stopped painting on this around 4:00am this morning. I’m using photo/video images from the intranet for references however the paintings take on a life of their own based on my interpretations of what happens during these weather events. I believe this particular storm is from one of the recordings made by storm chaser Pecos Hank. The professional storm chasers do all of us a great service by reporting and recording first hand what is happening in these storm systems. People respond to tornado warnings more diligently when they see imagery like this broadcast live in their area. They risk their lives ( and sometimes lose their lives) doing this service. So thanks to all the meteorologists, both professional and amateur out there who practice storm chasing in a manner that helps and does not endanger others. Happy 4th of July!

10” x 10” gouache and metallic pigments on paper. The complexity of what happens in tornadic weather is mind boggling. Numerous vortices are constantly forming and disappearing in the rotations. #fayettevillear #ozarks #gouache #gouache paintings #tornados #stormyweather #vortex #artistsoninstagram #artventuresgallery #leeanndodsonoriginal #artistsofnwa #womenartists

In April an May I became intrigued with images of tornadoes on the news. I’ve also spent a few hours in the tornado shelter in back of my house trying to calm my cats. I have always relished the drama and beauty of storm systems. Many times when I’ve been driving long distances I’ve seen gorgeous fronts and thunderheads and would pull over to try and capture the views. Now that I have watched hours of YouTube videos of storms I realize I’ve seen wall clouds and cells of circulation. Maybe I’ve even seen some rotation of baby vortexes. I have begun a series of gouache paintings. This is one I’ve been working on since yesterday and it still has a way to go. #fayettevillear #ozarks #artistsofnwa #gouache #tornados #artventuresgallery #wip #cloudscapes

Dark brown watercolor crayon and white charcoal on kraft paper. I may try adding a little water to the crayon but may not. I kind of like it like this.
