I felt sad looking at the mountain for the first time since the fire. I told my friend Kelly that I would call this picture ‘The Sad Mountain’.
Kelly said the mountain was not sad, it was reborn, bringing new life.
With my altered perspective, I decided that this picture would be called ‘Survivor’. It is dedicated to a city that pulled together in a bad time. To the firefighters and everyone who came to the rescue of the city we love.
