Ring of Fire
About this artwork
In this piece, I pushed the color contrasts of orange, purple, and green. This piece feels like a controlled burn! I used many layers of oil and wax, scraping in the wild grasses. I used my fingers to burnish the smokey sky. Depending on where this piece hangs, sunlight can hit the textured surface to simulate the flicker of flames. This piece has natural wood edges that have a waxed finish.
