Beauty Within The Burn

'Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.' - Andy Warhol.

Acrylic 24 x 30 inches. There was a fire this summer in near Purcell Mountain Lodge ( they hosted the firefighters). We were fortunate enough to hike there this fall and see this amazing area.

'To the artist, there is never anything ugly in nature.' - Auguste Rodin

This painting was a challenge and a little different for me. I wasn't sure quite how I was going to tackle it. So I did what I normally do when I don't know what I'm doing...bulldoze with gusto and see what emerges. I kind of like what happened. Working fast and furious for the first half and then getting tighter as I painted negative spaces.
