"Nature's Promise" was inspired from my need to begin coping with the devastation from the Black Forest Wildfire. As a resident of Black Forest, our lives have been altered. Fortunately, our home and my beloved studio just missed the flames.
The blue wildflower in the painting was quite small. I discovered it in my yard 4 days after the fire began and I had NEVER seen this flower before despite many walks in the forest, (To date, no one has yet identified it.) It's trumpeting shape and glorious color seemed to convey a sense of hope and healing. Will is come up again in 2014?
The cloud shape is the smoke plume that we witnessed as we were evacuating our home on the first day.
