Todays Funky Favorite: Thundercloud

Thundercloud was chosen as the title of this vivid painting since the white streaks reminded me of lightening and/or rain. As an abstract, of course, Thundercloud can represent whatever the viewer perceives. I am particularly attracted to the rough texture and striking vitality of the piece. A Moosehead Lager from Moosehead Breweries Ltd. in Canada was used to creat this painting.

Thundercloud was a prize winning entry in the 2015 Charbonneau Arts Festival! Order your limited edition print of Thundercloud today by going to the Thundercloud image under the Modern and Abstract category in the Shop Our Art menu then following the prompts through checkout!
