Forest fires in the northern part of Vancouver Island are spewing particulate matter into the skies which has now drifted down to hang over Victoria. Sunlight filtering through the haze is bathing the city in a beautiful amber glow. Unfortunately, I’m finding it impossible to paint in this light, so I’m packing it in for the day.
Were I to look at this objectively, I’d have to admit this is not one of the more significant problems these fires are creating. My sympathies to those whose homes and communities are threatened, and my thanks to those who are working to put the fires out.
