Pennsylvania Lightning

On July 9 of this year I journeyed to the Philadelphia area to meet my friend and art client and deliver her Angelic Portrait to her. During the trip I had to pass through a violent thunderstorm with lightning and deluge. The storm passed over me and I drove through wet streets with large puddles, while the twilight scene was illuminated by vivid, flickering lightning. These were some of the worst conditions I've ever traveled in, but I managed to get to my destination.

This tiny drawing is a simulation, or an illustration. It is not the result of an on-site study. I used a generic Pennsylvania townhouse as a reference and the rest is from memory.
