Thunderheads Building

5"x 7"    oil

My husband and I just got back from a short but way too exciting camping trip with old friends. My husband and one of our group had both been fire-fighters and when they looked at the clouds piling up over the lake they predicted thunder--and lightning--coming soon. I managed to take some photos which I painted this (and other paintings) from before the serious thunder, lightning, and rain began. We sat out the brief thunderstorm in our various campers all the time worrying about the possibility of fire from the lightning in our drought-stricken area...and, sure enough, fires did start. We left the following morning just in the nick of time as we found out when we got home that the lake was surrounded by fires and the roads were being closed!
