"Ember of Life" oil on canvas, original size: 48 x 40 cm.
As a child I believed that fireflies are fabulous creatures from a fairytale world and in the night they are trying to illuminate their way back home. Perhaps back then on a subconscious level was the birth of the idea to paint the fireflies, but in recent years often comes to my mind and slowly formed in the course of time. 2 weeks ago I decided that the time has come and I know well enough the"Ember of Life" in nature to reproduce them on the canvas. Whether I have succeeded, you have to decide
Here is the first in a series of pieces I completed in Nathan Fowkes' class on Schoolism. I had some reference of a cool Civil War era tugboat and thought it would be fun to take it on a trip into the mysterious jungle.
This is an illo I made to go in the third book in the Spera series which was created by Josh Tierney and illustrated by several awesome folks. I’m excited to be part of Vol. 3! Check out Vol. 1 and Vol. 2!
