This was the second day of the Mancos Open Studios Tour and the Weber Canyon fire. The fire was much closer this day and the winds carried the smoke overhead covering the sun. Those little bits of white and black stuck to the painting are actually ash from the fire.
Things are looking better there today but it is still only 15% contained. This and the previous posted artwork are for sale and the purchase price will go directly to the Mancos Fire Department. You can purchase it from the Goodnight Trail Gallery or you may contact me directly, because the gallery may be temporarily closed because of the fire.
