Lead Image: “Rough Fire, Kings Canyon National Park, Wednesday, August 12, 2015,” by Suzi Long, pastel, 12 x 9 in.
The California artist painted a pastel of the Rough fire as it ran through Kings Canyon National Park in August. The fire would eventually destroy the lodge there.
“It was so awesome, literally, to be able to capture nature in action,” says Long.
