Supercell by John Hulsey

(click on painting to purchase)

A supercell is a hugely powerful and very
immense weather system that often spawns
very large hail, high winds and tornadoes.
They also create some eerily beautiful light
and cloud effects that are worth some
personal risk to try and capture as art. The
trick is in knowing when to get out of there.
I have painted many storms that ultimately
produced tornadoes, and to my pleasant
surprise, they have always found eager and
appreciative buyers. So I guess that I am
not alone in my fascination with dangerous
weather. This one did produce destructive
tornadoes and came very near my house,
but, thankfully, missed me.
