This sculpture was inspired when I saw some photos of storm clouds, which I love to paint. I had already done the sculpture of "Dancing in the Stars," and the saying of "Dancing Up a Storm" came to me. So I combined the two thoughts to create this sculpture. I love the combination of the warm colors of reds, yellows, tans and browns playing off the cool colors of blues, bluish grays, and whites. I also wanted to show the dancer dynamically commanding space like dancers do and how the dancer is enthusiastically dancing among the stormy clouds so nonchalant like there is nothing strange about it. It makes me smile!
