Having no clean air left to breathe because of smoke from wildfires made a big impact on me. When the air around us is polluted there is nothing left to do besides, eventually, perish and die. It came too close for comfort this Summer.
These two small paintings are for now titled “Little wildfire no. 1” and “Little wildfire no. 2”. These are letter sized, acrylic on paper. I made them yesterday, after not having painted for a while.
