"forest fires act as agents of renewal, of rebirth...where fires burn hottest, the soil itself is left cauterized" ~alan kesselheim (author: the wilderness paddler's handbook)


i know this is a strange time of year to make mention of forest fires...but i painted this and wanted to share it.  i love the horizon texture presented in various hues of blue and with echoes both upward and downward offer to both grieve what has been lost, but see a certain beauty of what is to come.

the quote i reference is from a man name alan kesselheim. from what i have read and have come to understand, he moved out west (montana) for a woman, the land and a need to write.  i love his passion for these things and the eloquence in which he shares.

here is a link to his blog: Al Kesselheim

if you enjoy reading about the great outdoors and the adventures of real folks, i'm certain you will enjoy reading his delightful, passionate and geological observations.
