I was so impressed with some recent internet photos of super cell rain storms going on here in the Midwest and Minnesota, so dramatic and devastating at the same time, I tried to translate that into this image.. hope you like it... and keep dry !:cool:

Very Diebenkorn compositionally speaking. And it's a lulu. Really super painting, but I tend to like this kind of bold, clearer composition and simpler color. It feels a little more masterful -- and I'm saying nothing negative about other directions. But this just happens to be something that speaks of a clearer, masterful intention. Great job!

This supercell is awfully active, almost organic and is possibly going to phagocytize (engulf) our planet!:eek: EEEHHHHKKKKK:cool: Great blues and painting!

Great job!Thanks DAkey, I can see the parallel to Diebenkorn compositionally although I used a lot more surface texturing...I think your signature quote is most appropriate...some work is hard and sometimes it comes easily.. as this one did. but just the day prior I labored for several hours and got no where...

I think it works well in this one..
