Crackle

Crackle

Elizabeth Wallace
40 x 30 x 0.75 in., oil on canvas

"Crackle" shows a cactus scorched by wildfire, and beginning to recover by shedding its skin. As I was painting this image outdoors, ash from a nearby wild fire drifted down from the sky and landed on my palette.  The finished image resembles a thermometer measuring the changing climate in the West.
