Water and Fire

"The interplay of water and fire here in Northern California is a constant reminder of the precariousness of all life. The current drought conditions and recent devastating wildfires hastened by climate change haunt this part of the country. With this group of paintings I celebrate the special places in nearby coastal tributaries: the creeks, streams and rivers that bring life to the land. And I paint to remind us that fire is also with us urging attention to how we live. " - JP
