Katrina formed on August 23 during the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season and caused devastation along much of the north-central Gulf Coast.

The figures at the bottom of the painting, struggling to survive this deluge, are caught up in a swirl of emotions: grief, disbelief, helplessness. One figure has ascended into the arms of Katrina and is being swept away. Is this a moment of salvation or, perhaps, of death?

When this painting is hung up on the wall, you are directly facing those hands, wrinkled by a prolonged wading through the muddy water.
