THE DELUGE

THE DELUGE

Piece description from the artist

It can be over whelming to experience the worst that Nature dishes up. This painting is a nightmare memory from my youth. I sometimes wonder how an event can haunt a person their whole life. It was the late 1950's in Nebraska. One night my family decided to drive out into the country and visit grandparents. It had been raining hard for days. In those days not a lot of people would risk driving out into the dark in the rain at night. Our headlights were dim, we slowed and came up a small rise to the top of the hill, and on the other side was nothing; nothing but water. The road disappeared. Everything all around disappeared. I believed we would be swallowed up and disappear as well. Complete terror is the only way I can describe it. We were going to die. It was THE DELUGE.
