Forest Sunset

Plein Air painting of a brilliant sunset in the Mt. Hood
National Forest where I camped this summer.
There was a wildfire some distance from the campground,
and the wind blew the smoke for miles.
The smokey air caused the sunset to cast a golden glow
through the trees.
This glow had the strange effect of  hiding
many of the trees in this dense forest.
