Shortly after releasing my print Air Operations an art collector/fire fighter mentioned in passing - not to forget helitac crews in future paintings. I remembered hearing tales of helicopters reaching their targets and dropping fish as well as water on the fire. I instantly knew this curious aspect of using such aircraft would be part of my final composition. So began the daunting task of collecting all the references I needed to complete the painting the way I saw it in my mind's eye.
The cliffs in the painting make up the eastern shore of King Fisher
Island on the Flaming Gorge Reservoir in Utah. The island's
slopes have experienced a variety of fires throughout the years.
Most recently, attempts at prescribed burns have been done to help
the habitat for the area's bighorn sheep population.
