Spring Green on the Burned Field, pastel, 9x12,



This past winter our neighbor set fire accidentally to the field by his house. A huge swath of winter-dried grasses was burned off leaving the ground completely blackened. Nearby cedars were singed and scorched. As spring approached, the lovely little green shoots of new grass appeared making a dramatic contrast.
