Nature’s Drama of June 1 was unsettling and the funnel cloud traveled in a random pattern throughout Western Mass. I was in the basement with my 4 year old grandson, watching the eerie color outside as the 100 mile per hour winds uprooted trees and tore my fence apart. It was frightening. It was like emerging from a war zone as we started back up the stairs. Now, however, I am going to take this drama and put my passion back into art. No funnel clouds will be seen in my 30 x 40 inch canvas! It’s time to make the most of my time and paint.
