Hurricane Art - "Flashing Water" An Etching from the Hurricane Hugo Storm Series

As Tropical Storm Fay dumps up to 30 inches of rain in areas of Florida, Charleston and the SC Lowcountry are also getting lots of rain from the outer bands of the storm.

This stormy weather reminds me of a series of etchings I made after Hurricane Hugo struck Charleston, SC on September 21, 1989.
After Hugo hit Charleston, I found zinc printing plates that had been etched from the storm surge, rainfall, and high winds which had also heavily damaged my home and much of coastal SC.

These storm etched printing plates became the inspiration for a group of etchings I created of my impressions from Hurricane Hugo.
Driving wind, rain, high seas, tornadoes all found expression in a collection of large etchings I call "The Storm Series".
