"Forest Fire Reflected in Mountain Stream"

064

Wildfire season again, smoke in the valley, smell of smoke in the air…image of burning against the fresh transparent water with rocks and leaves on the streambed. Reflective of the failure to wrestle with the angel of climate change, our impact on global systems.

I am not a very accomplished artist in drawing or painting, but I’ve found that even my lame attempts at painting provide a rich bounty of details which can be scanned and used for textures and brushstrokes. My art teacher would set up a still-life as an assignment and I’d keep painting over it again and again until it no longer resembled the “objects” thus defeating his ability to judge it in comparison with the still-life or the work of other students. If I frustrated my teacher, imagine how frustrated I was. Whenever I would show him something I drew and asked for technical help in making my “vision” stronger, he would direct me back to the still-life. Well, now there’s digital photography for that. If I need an apple, I will take a photo of one. If I need the steel structure of a bridge, I can do the still-life with camera. I still enjoy sketching with ink and hope to do more painting soon.

Random Acts is the name of an underground black market fair in my novel, Primetime, so it’s an insider bit of information. The hitchhiking red thumb is the key, in what Paul DiFilippo referred to as a “glorious tangle.”
