We had some rain last night in North Idaho. The sky is bright and we have a break from the wildfire smoke. It feels like a miracle. I just finished this painting and it really reflects the beauty of the day.
One of two small forest paintings I just finished painting. The western smoke seems to be seeping into my work.
The west filled with smoke, the sunsets filled with color.
Happy Halloween! I painted this last November it seems to have the right vibe for today.
While picking up my Vashon Island show I saw friends and family. I was fortunate to carve pumpkins with my sister’s family! That is me in the foreground.
In 1988 there were huge forest fires in Yellowstone National Park. My Dad and I drove through the park on our way to an epic backpacking trek just south of Yellowstone. I thought I would never see forest fires like that again, I wish that were true.
