Prairie Fire

Oil painting done in 1962 when I was 17 or 18 years old.  I was trying to recapture the effect of a dust storm that I had seen, but it wound up looking like a prairie fire.  Rather than trying to capture what was in my head, I went with what I had

Years later I did achieve the dust storm look on canvas.  It was incredibly dull and boring, so I painted it over with something else, no doubt.

This is just fantastic! =) Oh yeah, I forgot to welcome you to the EDM group as well.
I wish I could keep a drawing for that long...most of mine were either given away or just lost.
