Here is another fire study of Mt. Hood with interesting smoke shapes, a companion piece to the study I posted yesterday.
The mountain seemed practically engulfed in smoke.
I painted away, concerned but fascinated, and knowing there was nothing I could do about the fires except pray. I thought of friends who are smoke jumpers and wondered if they might be involved in efforts to contain the damage.
Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.
