Bush Fire

30x36, oil on canvas We drove through hours of bush fire on both sides of the road. I knew when It would make a dramatic painting.

We are back from a very successful safari in Botswana and Zambia. We went with Matthew's cousin Pip and his wife Jan. We also went with our favorite travel companion, Johnny Mullane (on the roof). Appropriate since that's where he slept every night. We did a few nights ourselves....different roof, of course! Nothing like Africa to show you the way life should be lived. We loved sitting around the camp fire at night, trading stories and dreading the bush shower that was a necessity with the layers of Kalahari sand on our faces and in our hair. The game viewing was fantastic, lots of favorites and lots of firsts. We have inspiration for months to come.
