Fire

Fire
The inspiration for this piece has been the fires in the western part of the United States.  Not only damage to the forests but destruction to peoples' homes has been immense.  Safety from the elements does not exist when fire is involved, no haven then.  It all seems so unpredictable and it is totally scary.  Mother Nature is the one in charge ultimately.

This piece is part of the barn series that Ingrid in Sweden and I are collaborating on.  Fire heads to Sweden soon but will eventually return to me and will become part of a three signature journal.

Great success. Even if I try, I can't tell myself that it's dawn breaking instead - the fire really comes over.
