"And where two raging fires meet together, they do consume the thing that feeds their fury. Though little fire grows great with little wind, yet extreme gusts will blow out fire and all." - William Shakespeare

This painting is called Gust as it expresses the advantages and benefits of the wind rather than the devastation that it could cause. It reminds us to look at the upside of things no matter how many downsides there might be.
