A clash between two storm cells in New Mexico, United States, each with its own rotating updraft.
The curved striations of the oldest noticeable against the new bubbling convection of the newer.
It was a fantastic sight to watch and it’s the rarity of such scenes that keep drawing me back to the United States Plains each year.

“But something happens when rain interrupts the view: the lens through which we are seeing is revealed.

Water both obscures and highlights the landscape.
” The New York-based painter captured these moments in a series of paintings, Under the Unminding Sky, named after a line in Dylan Thomas’s poem This Side of the Truth.
The images are composites of different photos.

“Painting water can take on so many arrangements of colour and light, so I see the raindrops as individual paintings.”
