SOLD

Wildfires are burning out of control in Southern California near my home. The photo was taken in my neighborhood Monday morning when I set out with my paints to capture this awesome sight in oils.

As I created this painting on location small bits of ash fell and became embedded in the oil paint. They can easily be brushed off when the painting is dry but I decided to leave them for now, as they impart a sense of history to this piece.

I also created two other paintings of the fires that are on eBay. You can click the headline to purchase this painting or see the other wildfire paintings. Each is a unique piece of history.

The FREE PAINTING is not offered today, but keep watching. It could be any day now! (Maybe even tomorrow!) When I post the free painting you must email me within 48 hours for a chance to win. There are no strings attached; even the shipping is free.

Today’s thought to smile about:
Thinking about better days ahead

Ya gotta see the bright side of things. When life hands you lemons, make lemonade. When life hands you wildfires, make paintings. - Tom

I like your wildfire paintings, but shouldn't you be packing or something? Hope the fires don't get any closer.
Keep us posted.

Thanks for the concerns everybody. Yes, we are all safe. We're alert and ready to move on a moment's notice. Until then, there's nothing to be done but hope. - Tom

Tom, the painting says it all. It is uncanny how there is a glimpse of beauty even in disaster. Thanks for stopping by my blog. The painting is beautiful.

LOVE "Liquid Thunder" by the way!!
