My lightening flash was made with a wax birthday candle before I painted the picture.
I once read that you had more chance of being struck by lightning than winning the lotto,
well I’ve got past that hurdle and still haven’t won the lotto! I lived in Colorado Springs, USA, this is either the second highest lightening area in the States or the world. I tell you this to emphasise just how spectacular the lightening was, sometime you just had to stand outside and watch. Once in a post card blue sky there was a tiny white cloud with lightening shooting out of it just like a cartoon.
