I watched the tornadoes that ravaged the south on April 27, 2011 in real time from the comfort of my chair here in Iowa. (I posted more about that experience here.) It’s heart wrenching to see the destruction afterwards. The image for this piece of art has been haunting me until I sat down and did it.

My first adventure with Adobe Illustrator. I have to admit, the drawing is much better quality. Added the color in Photoshop because I know what I’m doing there.
This one looks like a wedding invitation to me. Or is it just that I was tuning into someone who stopped by with a wedding announcement just as I was finishing up with it? I swear I was thinking wedding for at least 20 minutes before the knock on the door.
I seem to be stuck on this color palette. I did the background in Corel Painter Essentials 2, then did the rest in Photoshop CS2. I used some splatter and frames Photoshop brushes by BSilvia at graphics-illustrations. The fuzzy white brush and the sort of sequins/beads brush on the heart are my very own creations.
Created in Photoshop using one of my favorite motifs, heart as flower petal.
