Ironically, as I painted this scene, during all this mess with Hurricane Florence, I was thinking of my beautiful forested backyard in Richmond VA and how my home escaped damaged but my idyllic forest was decimated during hurricane Isabelle back in '03. And now Florence touched the city with tornadoes! Luckily not as much damaged occurred with the exception of one known fatality, sadly enough. We have a new way of life to contend with as our climate changes. No longer can take things for granted.
