In the fall of 2016, driven by a year of severe drought, wild fires raged near my home in the NC Smoky Mountains.  When I delivered supplies of honeybees and eyedrops to the nearby staging area, The Fire Marshall noted that the fires produced  unprecedented balls of fire that leapt from treetop to treetop.  It was a fire more typical of the western states rather than a temperate rain forest.  The reality of global warming at a local level compelled me to respond with the urgency captured in this Charcoal and Cold Wax painting, Pillars of Fire.
