A small fire painting, 8″x10″. Fire like water has a fascinating quality that really holds my attention. The hypnotic motion and the timeless nature of elements, I suppose, are part of their appeal.
I was planning on painting some larger fire images but here is another small one!
As the summer gives way to fall I continue to paint smaller works. This painting is 11″x14″ acrylic/open acrylic on panel.
I have been painting slightly larger fire paintings. This one is 14″x11″ so not very large but it gives me more room to play with the imagery.
I wanted to paint fire with wind blasting away at it, causing it to rage all the more. I really like the result but it does make me think of dragons.
I have painted some small campfire paintings with the intention of eventually working on larger ones. Currently the largest boards I have prepped are 11″x14″ so I decided to paint some at that size. Just large enough to give me more freedom of movement! I sold this one before I posted it on Instagram. The woman who purchased it saw it on my “story” which is a video limited to 24 hours. She lives in Kuwait, excited to be sending work to a country I have not mailed to previously!
