Limited edition giclée print of The Fire Lookout IV from The Jobs of Yesteryear Series. Printed on acid-free paper with archival inks and finished with a standard size white mat. This print is easy to frame and get hung on your wall. The Jobs of Yesteryear are thought-provoking conversation pieces that will bring an air of history and whimsy to any room.

Fire lookouts (and their towers) predate the United States Forest Service and became nationally numerous after the Great Fire of 1910 (arguably the largest forest fire in recorded history), which burned 3,000,000 acres in Washington, Idaho and Montana. Spotting plumes of smoke, tracking lightning strikes and directing firefighters to the fires were among their duties. Although some are still staffed, the fire lookout has largely been replaced by cameras and aircraft.

Each original painting is created on stained wood panel using acrylic paint. The limited color palette gives the work a historic feel. The long limbed characters are crafted using hundreds of hand-torn bits of kraft paper collaged on top of watercolor paper and painted with an acrylic wash. The painting includes details showing how the fire lookout job became obsolete.
