Fire in the Forest

At the height of the fires near Ft. Collins CO a couple of weeks ago, this happened without intention as I played with some new acrylic ink. I pressed a wadded up kleenex into the wet surface and when I removed it I thought 'that looks like fire'.

I like the effect you achieved. It reminds me a bit of the Chinese artist Cai Guoqiang, who uses gunpowder.

Wow. I've been watching the fires closely, and you captured a whole other way to see them.
