My kids and I often travel to Slave Lake to visit family and go to the beach. It is our favorite destination in Alberta. On a recent visit earlier this summer, we were walking along the Devonshire Beach Trail and were surrounded by burnt remnants and the brilliant colors of the new growth taking hold against the big blue sky. The scene was both sad and beautiful at the same time. A forest’s ability to regrow after being devastated by fire is a reminder that with patience and perseverance anything is possible. I took some photos and had to paint the scene when I got home.
