Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

This is another painting inspired by a Polaroid photograph I took in the Isle of Man in 2007.

At the time of taking the photograph, I was out walking along the coast enjoying a rapturous thunderstorm, with my chunky Polaroid camera safely tucked underneath my coat. I was ready to point & shoot at the right time. Working on instinct, and once the thunderstorm stopped I quickly turned around to face a dazzling display of heavy, dark clouds with almost a dawn like feel to the light. I quickly took the photo and popped it back in my pocket to develop.

The period in my life when I took this series of Polaroid's was very stressful, and all of the images represent an attempt to momentarily escape from pretty bleak days. More than any of the other Polaroid's, the painting born from this one represents some sort of temporary release of pent up energy which can also be clearly seen in the original Polaroid.

This is the second painting from the Polaroid series, and there are 5 more to come.
