After the Forest Burned
oil on canvas - 30" x 40"
I've long thought that forest burn areas are quite beautiful. They also represent renewal, change & regrowth to me. I've painted this particular burn area in the Henry Mountains of Utah many times & I suspect will paint it many more times. Even in fall, with more change in the air, the new growth brings hope to the scarred area, while storm clouds promise more inevitable strife & change.
