Last week, ARTINFO’s 3rd of May posted this within a series of hurricane-related artworks. I especially appreciate this one for its smudginess - the muddy brushstrokes and canvas/background-showing gaps evoking the messiness of the storm and its unpredictable hints of blue.

The art: John Marin, Hurricane, 1944.
The news: “Big Box Stores’ Hurricane Prep Starts Early,” by Jon Hamilton for NPR News.

Note: Before there was The Weather Channel, there was art. Throughout the day 3rd of May will post examples of artists thrilling to big, bad, threatening storms.
