This is a painting of a photo my brother took from the summit of Silver Peak, Washington I recently completed as a commission. I know it’s a different style and subject matter than what I normally post but I wanted to share it, both because I loved how it looked finished and because of how I felt while creating it.
I loved working on the beautiful view, but it also made me a little melancholy. Currently every member of my immediate family except myself are living in natural disaster areas. My parents and sister are in Lake Charles, LA which was devastated by hurricane Laura, my other sister and her family had the eye wall of Hurricane Sally pass over them this past week in FL. My brother in Washington who took this picture can’t even go on a walk because of bad air quality from the fires on the west coast.
I am thankful to be in a place where I am safe to paint, where I can go outside and see changing fall colors, where can I stay inside and have power and running water. So many people I know don’t have that right now.
