Watercolor on 140 lb Arches archival paper
15 x 22 unframed
I painted this after hiking through the burn on Driveway Butte in the North Cascades. The light grey ash was like snow in places. The trail crew had been through, and the fallen trees cut where they crossed the trail. I painted them blue because they had died, turning the old "warm colors advance, cool colors recede" on its head.
