Nature as in all of life hangs in a balance. Forests need fire to regenerate life in the interior. Some types of trees need fire to pop their seeds and some animals and birds like to feed in the open spaces where new grasses and young plants grow up after a fire. Fire can also be tragic destroying years of growth and lovely old forests. This painting follows in form from the calligraphy series. It is made of many lines built up on the canvas creating a richly textured surface not unlike a forest.
