Sweet Release


I painted this from a photo I took of a powerful storm near my family's farm in Lublin, Wisconsin. The farmhouse had a weather alarm/radio that would blare loudly whenever there was a tornado warning so I went outside to assess the situation.


The clouds gathered and swirled, but never formed a funnel. But the storm created sheets of rain off in the distance, beyond the fields and trees.The air was electric and the energy of the storm was incredibly moving. I'm glad I captured the moment on film so I could relive it and paint it years later.
