    Black Blizzard

    I was astounded by the image of the mammoth dust storm that ate Phoenix Arizona earlier this week... I started reading about the huge dust storms of the 30s... the dust storm carried tons of dust and dirt all the way to the east coast and as far at 200 miles out to sea .. those storms were called "Black Blizzards" ... so this is my take on the storm that attacked Phoenix..

    A curious phenomenon, considering that it may tone down the famous colourful places Phoenix is part too under its dark and thick dusty veil. An almost choking and blinding feeling seems present here!

    I had not heard about that storm Gary. Black blizzards must be an awful phenomenon of nature. Your painting is very well done...
    Try to see as many angles of vision as possible...no single one of us has a "handle" on the whole picture.

    an interesting painting of a horrendous time indeed, from the Canadian Prairies and across the Us during the 30s and into the 40s all because of mans misuse of nature

    Terrific Gary - a fine interpretation penetrating your subject material. Besides the fact that it's just great to look at, I like the competing spacial dimensions and perspectives which give the painting lots of character and local places to explore in a whole that transcends the sum of its parts. As usual, really well done.

    I agree with Jean, and fantastic abstract Gary of this horrible disaster.

    MSIE, Caesar,Steve - thanks for viewing and commenting..
    justjean - absolutely right it was the most extensive and long lived ecological disaster in the US and Canada and caused by greed ...

    byron - as a fellow abstract painter I am glad you find the hidden details and corners in my work...I imagine your work and mine scale up much better than reducing down...

    pat... thanks for your constant support and comments..
