In so many places in the world, the countryside burns uncontrollably. Inevitably, wildlife is an unseen victim.
When I started this piece I had a very bucolic idea in mind. It's not very often I get so emotionally involved in my work, but in this case, the tragic image took control and dragged me in the direction it needed to go.
Parts of the construct drove me crazy, but we're at the end.
I can only hope, as we enter the backside of 2021, things will calm down and 2022 will be easier on us all.
