Started Sunday August 3rd, 2008.
It was 4 pm on the balcony at "The Executive" condo in Brockville. We were all enjoying the weather on a beautiful August afternoon.
A cumulus on the American shore shot up to a massive towering cumulus (TCU) in a matter of minutes and I grabbed a canvas and paints to have fun with it. With convective cloud, the shapes, patterns and colours change by the minute and I had to rush before the TCU started to shower out. This was only the first in a series of TCU's that produced showers for the rest of the day. Only one or two way to the east over New York State, ever made it to the cumulonimbus stage.
The "ICU" in the title could be one of two things. It was initially meant to be "I see you" but at times during the process of the painting, it could have meant "intensive care unit" as the survival of the sketch was in some doubt.
