"Donkey Hero of High Park Fire"
Acrylic on Canvas - 12" w x 24" h
I painted the "Donkey Hero of High Park Fire" after reading an article in the newspaper about a donkey who had led several horses to safety during the fire. When the donkey saw help arrive, he calmly shepherded his equine friends over to the rescuers despite the heat that singed them. At the time I was making gestural paintings where I would start painting and then work with images that appeared in the paint. The spirit of the heroic donkey emerged out of the flames and onto my canvas.
