Tending Fire


There was a time a few years ago, when my friend and I hiked almost weekly in the Golden Ears back- country even during the cold Winter months. This painting was greatly inspired by the incredible views of thick forested areas and foggy Winter skies. We talked a lot about trying our hand at setting up a fire but never got around to it. So there in the foreground of the snowline, and at the edge of the forest, I placed a person tending a fire in the bright moonlight just the way I imagined it.
