Acrylic on Hand-stretched Canvas

The Kalmiopsis Wilderness is the wildest place on the West Coast. Fire is part of the life cycle of this area.

“The rugged Klamath-Siskiyou Ecoregion of southwestern Oregon and northwestern California is a world-renowned hub of biological diversity. The mountains and rivers that define this region are some of the most spectacular in America. The flora and fauna are absolutely unparalleled. The wild nature of the KS is globally recognized. The region is designated by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature as one of only seven Areas of Global Biological Significance on the continent of North America and the KS has been proposed as both a World Heritage Site and UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.” – KSWild.org

Thank you to Scott Stoddard of the Grants Pass Daily Courier for permission to paint from his photo of hiking the area years after the Biscuit fire had burned the area in 2002.
