Lower Orchard, Summit Wildfire

Lower Orchard,  Summit Wildfire
Oil on canvas, 20"x 20"

(note on the painting:  Last May, after having been in our new home only 10 days, a wildfire broke out near our home.  The winds took the fire in the opposite direction, but it was a stressful & vigilant few days.  The smoke blocked the sun and created this beautiful yet eerie glow throughout the landscape.  This is a view of our backyard, which I photographed at the time.  I painted a small (3"x3") study of this view, and this is the larger & more developed version.)
