A massive electrical discharge
atmosphere to earth
creates a lightning strike. In a flash of light a tree is struck.
Energy races through the tree faster than the eye can see.
"Electric Blue is the first in a series of 4 experimental paintings. The goal of the series was to be creative with imaginary landscapes. I photographed trees while hiking in the National Wildlife Refuge with my dog.
I loved the form of this tree, and imagined a scene where you could freeze the image of a tree the split second it was struck
by lightening, seeing the electricity running through the tree. It is a 12" x 12" acrylic painting on gesso board."
