In the past I have posted images of my smaller dot paintings. Now I want to highlight some of them and discuss their inspirations. There’s more to say about them than some others.

“ao” is the first piece from my Memphis paintings. Very simply the line of yellow dots follows the path of Hurricane Katrina. So what’s the significance?

Well, the night the remnants of Hurricane Katrina hit Memphis the power went out at my hotel shortly after midnight. Power was not restored until 4 p.m. the next day. It was getting quite warm in the hotel. When I drove through town power lines and trees were down. The wrath of the storm certainly was felt up that way. What better way to represent Hurricane Katrina (tropical storm by this point) than to paint the path the storm took that day.
