Oil painting Addison Paige #37 The Dramatic and the Dangerous  by Addison Paige

Addison Paige #37 The Dramatic and the Dangerous

#37 36" x 36" x 1 7/8" Acrylic and charcoal on canvas. 2014

Some people who have seen this painting are uncomfortable with the way the heavy red area in the upper right corner seems to loom over the rest of the painting but I like the drama that this boiling red area provides, this is the way I feel about big dark heavy rain clouds. I have always lived in an area of the country where tornadoes and hurricanes can be a threat.  I think the drama and tension I feel about big storms is an important aspects in many of my paintings. These storms are when nature can really overpower mankind.

I have continued the painting over the edge of the gallery wrapped canvas so that this painting does not require framing.
