I created this to show at Raices Taller’s annual monsoon show. The title for this year is “Aguas Sagradas”, Sacred Waters. I don’t usually do landscapes, but I was drawn to some photographs of monsoon storms in Tucson and felt I could express my thoughts on that. This piece depicts a storm approaching from the north at near sunset. I wanted to emphasize the blue and purple colors of the clouds, highlighted with a splash of lightning.
