TSUNAMI REVISITED

For NFWaters
For This or That


Notes

In contrast to Army of Light which I redid 4 times,
painting Tsunami was inspired by the weather disaster,
Painting went very fast. The concept was to deconstruct, 
and show several colors that make up white.
 This painting was done
 in the week of the tsunami in SE Asia

In preparation of their wedding, my niece and future hubby 
changed their plans to have their honeymoon in that area 
last minute to go to Egypt
Scary thought!









in front of an audience 
in the Ambassador Auditorium in  Pasadena, CA.

The railings of two staircases oppsite from this wall
 are reflected in the stone tiles.

  3. Painting in front of an audience. Wow. For me it is usually a very private thing. I certainly wouldn't have the courage to paint in public.

  4. In front of an audience? I am not creative at all. I wish I could make this beautiful work.

    Thank you! That is what many like!

    Scriptor,
    Once upon a time I was teaching and singing. So, I had experience with an audience. But the finishing touches I always do in private:)

    Marijke,
    Dank je wel! Ja, dat doen ze hier meer. Jouw talenten liggen waarschijnlijk ergens anders:)

    Indrani,
    Thanks, Indrani! Was just thinking, in your life time you can visit all the places in West Eur. like Germany, your parents probably longed to travel to!

    Joyful,
    Thank you! There is beauty, even in a raging sea.

  7. An audience would be fun, if my nerves could get over it! I love how it turned out.

  8. Wayne,
    When one hasn't been a victim of it, it is easy to see the beauty.

    Thanks so much Dianne, and also for your visit!

    Rebecca,
    It took me "several" years to get over it! The painting part was like surfing:)
