Boxing Day Tsunami - Wrath of Nature

I had to record this - the Boxing Day Tsunami which caused devastation throughout Asia, taking with it hundreds of thousands of lives.

This painting was based on a photograph of the aftermath. The waves were dying down and the specks on the high banks at left are the people who came out to witness the tragedy.

I remember coming home from work that evening and , dazed by the swift tragedy which hit part of my country and destroyed lives, I started working on the painting which I cimpleted just under two hours that night. It was something I could not forget and hope by sharing this with you, we can remember how unforgiving nature can be.

This was painted on Dec 27 2004.
