‘Tropical Storm’ is ‘one of the most dangerous storms ever’ for U.S. as hurricane threatens Florida
3D artist Jason Rauz is making a case for Tropical Storm Irene in the Atlantic.
Rauze’s latest mural, titled “Tropics Storm Irenee,” is on display in the exhibition “Art on the Storm,” opening at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C.
The painting depicts Irene as a blue ocean and an ice-covered lake, as well as the island of Barbuda.
Irene’s name comes from the Dutch word for ice, while “Irene” means ice.
The artist said Irene could become the strongest hurricane ever recorded, with winds up to 165 miles per hour (270 kilometers per hour), the strongest ever recorded by the National Hurricane Center.
Irenee could hit the Florida coast in early July, causing catastrophic damage.
“It is a really scary situation,” Rauza said.
“We’ve seen so many storms over the last 100 years.
But this is one of the worst.”
Rauz said he is trying to capture the natural beauty and history of the Bahamas, and the storm’s effects in the Bahamas are likely to be “catastrophic.”
Rausz, who lives in Florida, said he began making his work during Irene.
He is hoping to be able to bring it to New York and New Jersey in the next month.
He has been inspired by the island’s famous ice sculptures.
In one of his works, Irene is shown with her arms crossed and her head bent.
Rauze said Irenee would be one of “the most dangerous storm ever” for the U.N. and the U,S.A.
Raus, whose work includes murals of former presidents, former prime ministers and celebrities, said IreNE will likely be the worst hurricane of the year for the Caribbean.
He said he will also be creating other artwork and paintings for tourists, such as a mural of a lighthouse in the Caribbean Sea.
