Oil, 24 x 36 inch, Hurricane alley, © St. Germain
This vision began with complete darkness.
I did not see anything, but heard a wailing wind
that grew stronger and stronger. When lightening
would flash and lighten up the sky for a moment,
I saw the fierce hurricane blowing, and a funnel
of dark clouds going up, one after the other, around the globe.
Up till now I had painted the previous paintings at almost
supersonic speed, and resolved most of the
“painting problems” (among artists: every painting
has some problems that need a strategy) to my satisfaction.
With this one I decided to reverse the sequence:
the starting point became to focus on the finishing
touch and adjusted the design to it – which was
how everything would appear the
moment lightening struck. The challenge of this
painting was to present it as an event that could really
happen, instead of over-dramatizing it, so people
would immediately distance themselves from it,
instead of taking this as a serious possibility.
Not totally committed to Fall yet, but leaves begin to turn!
der Natur Donnerstag
Our Lantana became smaller and smaller, and at first we could
not figure it out, because it had enough sun, until
hubby discovered two bunnies becoming regular visitors
of our yard. Well he bought netting or whatchemecallit,
and the party was over for the two sad bunnies,
looking at the beautiful recovered flowers.

MY FIRST VIDEO – not that I wanted to, but how do you say NO, when you hear three times “SAY to the people?”
Anyways, it’s pretty clear I have never done this, and not polished, or much time to smooth over the transitions.
But of course, some of you may need to HEAR this! My link to Youtube https://youtu.be/aZa9OzBz3hA
