Eruption by kalambo Eruption by kalambo
One hour speedpaint of the view I saw on Monday as Mt Sakurajima erupted over my head on my way home from work.

I felt very very small watching the ash bulge out of the crater and high into the clear blue sky casting a great shadow. As I stood completely alone on the bridge over the lava channel I could have been at any point in time. No noise but the distant thundering volcano and the cries of birds. Even though I’ve been living here for 2 months I had not truly felt that raw power of the volcano until that moment.
In fact i’m not sure I’ve felt so belittled by the Earth in my whole life. It is very humbling indeed.

Whatever we do to Earth, life will continue, volcanoes will erupt, the ocean will lap at the shore. The current environmental crisis we are facing is a matter of whether we will have an Earth that we, as a species, can survive on. Do what you can to protect this fiery, watery planet that is our only home.

You're creating such beautiful works that grab my soul right from the computer screen and place me in these worlds.. :heart: I wish I could hear the volcano like you did, it must have been such a strong experience. It's amazing how firmly you grab this experience and put it in canvas. Gosh I can't stop repeating myself but you're doing it so much justice :heart:

I love the epicness of this painting and your notes, we are truly small compared to this earth. I’m currently developed a daily writing app called Daily Prompt which utilises visual and written prompts to inspire stories and poems. Would you be interested in having Eruption feature as a prompt? It’s definitely the kind of image we are looking for. We don’t ask for rights or anything, just permission to feature the prompt.

if you want to know more about the app I can go into more details for you.

Thanks
Danny

I love how simple and large every stroke is. It gives it such a surreal, fantastical look. Very dream-like. Absolutely stunning!

That is a nice watercolour image. 

Sakurajima-san is one of Japans more active volcanoes and would I be right in thinking you're in Kagoshima?

Thanks! It's digital though, not watercolour :)

It is and I am indeed in Kagoshima! :D
