This painting, created about a year, was revisited the other day. I am preparing for a show at the Museum of Northern BC that will feature my fire paintings. This painting, which was originally not a fire painting, I decided I would "toast" a little so that it would fit in with the show.
I had forgotten that beneath the top layer of canvas on this painting, there was an old painting beneath! What a surprise when the vibrant red poked through a blackened hole. The result is of an almost visceral quality-- the feeling of something intimate revealed beneath a burned away facade.
