In pure contrast to your owl, and yet the elements of fire and water are so evident and complimentary. This felt as if heat was coming off the actual wood panel!
Thank you! This one started with a more direct concept that I wanted to chase, and while I made some mistakes with the materials (namely: too many layers of clear gesso which subdued the wood more than I would have liked), there is a ferocity there that felt very satisfying, even if it was difficult to photograph. I've always loved inter-playing animals with the elements (and you have done some gorgeous work with them as well), and I feel like the possible combinations are limitless, as is there potential for symbolism.
