Dots and Dashes

Fireweed

I spent the summer touring Alaska by motorcycle. This year and last were a tough couple of years for forest fires, thousands of acres burned but much of it was so remote no suppression efforts were made. The year after the fire has been through the burn areas fill with fushia coloured fireweed, it’s a beautiful, colourful landscape . That’s what inspired this 9″x12″ oil on canvas board.
