Hi Nicole,

Glad to hear that the fires are being contained. That has to be a nerve-wracking experience. Good luck to you and your friends and family as the recovery process begins. How did you ever manage to make paintings?

Hi Cris,

These paintings were made just after the fire in July (the GAP fire) that was really close to me. I love painting the yellow California grasses and it occurred to me that I think a lot about fire while making them...it was a natural progression to the fire images.

I'm heartbroken for those who lost their homes. Turns out it was some kids who had a bonfire the night before that didn't get entirely extinguished. Then...when the winds picked up it just grew into a huge mess of a business.
