USk: Oregon on Fire


Wildfire season is upon us again.

I sketched this quickly in in the studio in hopes I would get the worry and the words out of my system and be able to paint today on actual projects…  It looks to cheery, but the skies and everything around us are tinged with this oddly disturbing brown.  From my journal:

“I hate fire season.  The last huge fire near us was caused by a teenager tossing firecrackers into the the gorge.  His name was never released (a good thing, as he might have been lynched by some who lost everything) BUT the bad thing is he was sentenced with leniency.  As if he did not know the possible consequences.  NO NO NO, because unless he was retarded (is it okay to use that word anymore) there is no excuse for what he did and he should hae been given life.

The skies are brown and look ominous.

By the end of the day we will decide if we need to pack to leave.
