For about two years, I had been thinking about doing a tornado painting. What inspired me to create such a painting was a memory of being in the midst of one when I was a child living in Arkansas and recollections of the terrifying tornado scene from the 1939 movie, The Wizard of Oz.
After watching a TV special about the devastating tornadoes that occur in Oklahoma each year, I was compelled to create it. When I finished the painting, I found it difficult to look at…….it frightened me.
