I painted this watercolour in February at Santiago airport while I waited for my flight. I know most people pull out their laptops and use those high seats and narrow table top. But the one in Santiago is positioned in front of a solid glass wall overlooking the runway and the light’s good. I have no idea where the title came from and can only think that’s what I felt when I had finished this explosive piece.
As it transpires we are definitely in a storm, all of us and, as such, it conveys a sense of hope.
