Fire on the Mountain

Lightning strikes, fireworks and campers are often the source of wildfires in the spring and summer in Utah. Helicopters whirl through the sky with what seems like a drop of water compared to the raging fires below. Fascinating to watch and scary if you get too close, these fires spread rapidly with the fierce winds of the Utah afternoon. Our fearless fire-fighters risk life and limb to keep us safe. Thank you to all who serve, I am so grateful.

I wanted to do a few summer landscapes and when I witnessed these fires it pulled me into the fray. This scene took place just over Guardsman’s Pass in the Wasatch Mountain Range, on the way to Midway. Thankfully, it was extinguished in a couple of days.

You can see this original oil painting now at The Summit Gallery, 675 Main Street, Park City, Utah! Stop by and take a peak if you are in town!
