“Tornado News 1/4” by Ke Francis

Image size is 4 x 6 inches on 8 x 6 inch paper; framed to 13 x 13 inches, etching and watercolor.

Part of Ke Francis’s “Tupelo Tornado” series. The almost primitive style of Ke Francis’s work perfectly illustrate the events of the 1936 Tupelo tornado. Ke wanted to show how you can take a tragic event and actually grow from the experiences and illustrate the beauty of coming together as a community. In some pieces he even shows a sense of humor towards the storm.
