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!

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

Oil, 24 x 36 inch, The Shiny Wall, © St Germain

This is not the end of the visions yet!
Several of them I saw with a veil of mist over them
so it was more challenging to determine
the details. I sensed that this copper looking wall
with an eye engraved could be one of the world wonders
people all over the world would flock to.

I chose to add two people to symbolize the
intimacy and seductiveness this sculpture carried.
I imagined this to be a symbol of pride,
an all-seeing dark eye, and artistry.
Hopefully some will be able to take a step back,
instead of like these two, being totally
swallowed up by the media hype.

Also the smoke on top was not in the vision. I included
it to strengthen the feeling of mysteriousness
and religious seductiveness this scene carried. Do you
know that feeling seeing something simple, but sensing a
host of other unseen things that cannot
see daylight, are connected to it?

For the wall, I used Golden Acrylic Iridescent and Bright
Gold Renaissance Gold from Artists Oil color and
Winton Titanium White mixed with Cadmium Yellow light
(meaning, I Mixed Oil paint with Acrylic paint to achieve
this bright effect. Not usually done!)
