Fireweed
Fireweed

Self-promotion based on the novel, The Winter Vault by Anne Michaels.

Life, death, water, earth, love, grief… Cycles. A novel written with such poetry that I couldn’t shake it. I didn’t have a plan beforehand, I just started painting. The flower is fireweed, a native plant that grows after a forest fire, when everything has burnt to the ground… I thought it was suitable to the main character, Jean, thrown into grief after the death of her unborn child, her recovery and to the story overall.
