Ash Painting #1: Thomas Fire
Ash Painting #1: Thomas Fire
Soot and ash mixed with clear acrylic medium on paper.

Ash Painting Study #1 is the first piece in a series of paintings and drawings reflecting on the impact of wildfires. This piece uses ash collected from the Thomas Fire. The ash, soot, and soil from the burned landscape is mixed with a clear acrylic base then used in paintings. The imagery is inspired by the location the ash is collected from.
