I was looking through some images from the past few years and came across this one.
I painted it about between eighteen months and two years ago.It is our elderly cat John, (since deceased). He was rushing indoors to get away from the heat...it was another total fireban day with fires close to where we live.
Again, we are facing the same dangers, only much worse....our state is so dreadfully dry from the long drought conditions.
The firefighters and other emergency services are doing a magnificent job against terrible odds....we are all on alert!
