From the Fire is a live edge wood slab depicting the charred trees, losing their blackened bark as the moisture in the air changes. The ghostly trees in the background are a reminder of what was, in the past. As an explorer, I was compelled to walk this burn area, as I have walked this place many times before. As an artist, I wanted to create a piece of original art. Painting on a piece of wood stripped of its bark, seemed so fitting given the circumstance.
From the Fire
~4.5"x20.5" acrylic on wood
As an explorer, I felt compelled to walk the burned out area, from the forest fire. As an artist, I created an original art piece from a slab of wood. There's a favourite lake with crystal clear waters, that I paddle on frequently. This piece of wood was found on the shore, first chewed and shaped by a beaver, and then tossed smooth in the waves. The result is an organic, natural support for painting a moment of time in nature.
