The craziest warm Santa Ana winds blew all last night.
I woke to a dozen fallen razor-sharp palm fronds in the yard
Insane winds and giant, but too few, rain drops.
That’s what we call a storm in Southern California!
“Storm Chaser”, 30×40″ acrylic on canvas.

The “storm” must have influenced today’s work in the studio –
a long day that produced two works on canvas!
I love it when that happens!
I probably had more fun painting “Storm Chaser” than I’ve ever had with ANY painting.
I was deep in it – hours passed before I knew I needed a break!
I adore the feeling of being “in flow” –
breathing through it, taking risks, letting it all go……
I like this new direction – I’ll likely head that way with the next canvas – with the full intention to go even deeper.
Not sure, but I think the one below is not complete.
I’ll let it sit a day or two and check back in with it.
I do dig the indigo “glow” . . .
but already seeing ways to go further with the rocks.
