As I mentioned last week, this week’s art is a pastel-acrylic painting on paper for pens based on a photo I took last July in Chicago as we waited out a tornado warning on the 23rd floor of our hotel.

It was a bit unsettling, but it did make for some cool photos.

I did this version, and a couple of others, before I decided to put them away and look at them again later.  Well, later is now, and I’m happy enough with this one to share it here. I may revisit it in the future, but I’m not sure I really want to. I like the lighting and composition, but I think it might work better in the background of a more surrealistic piece.
