On Friday a fire started up Weber Canyon near Mancos, CO. Well before this fire broke out, we were to have our first Mancos Open Studio Tour this Saturday and Sunday. I was painting in town on Saturday and the smoke and fire were all I could concentrate on so I painted it. I decided that I will donate all the money to the Mancos Fire Department for their hard work at trying to get a jump on it. Unfortunately it is tinder dry here and with winds the fire grew rapidly. It has now taken about 6000 acres of land and, thankfully, so far no houses are involved. If you wish to purchase this, or the other painting I will post tomorrow, you may call the Goodnight Trail Gallery in Mancos at 970-533-1177. 100% of the price of this painting is going to the Fire Crew.
