"Skylight Red"

A couple of months ago, we had a visit from my cousin David McMillan, who was on a European tour from his home in the Southern part of New South Wales. Leo and I had visited him and his wife when we were in Australia in 1998: even though it's in the Murray River area, there is always a shortage of water.

The image of a bush fire advancing though a forest of tall, straight trees came into my mind when I saw this sculpture on Tuesday, by Chinks Grylls. "Skylight Red" is etched on mouth-blown, antique glass, and is on display at Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum as part of its "On the edge" exhibition.
