As a nod to the countless tarps used as temporary shelters during natural disasters, a 6' x 6' canvas tarp was used as the “canvas” for this painting, which depicts the forces behind extreme weather.

In the bottom right corner, the blue eagle represents an ocean flood. Powerful waves can “grab you and take you away as quick as an eagle takes its salmon from those waters,” says KC. At the bottom of the painting is a salmon trout which represents the earth, and a hand which symbolizes the grabbing and shifting of tectonic plates and earthquakes. In the centre left is a face with a U-form emerging from its head, representing mountains and volcanoes. The blue and red splashes emerging from it are lava and water. The Chilkat-style face on the right, surrounded by clouds, represents rain, lightning and thunder. Finally, at the top of the painting, the figure in profile depicts the power of wind: a significant factor in many natural disasters, hurricanes and tornadoes in particular.
