7th study for the coming painting of "Contemplation." Using acrylic and watercolor pencils, letting the colors blend and meld until shape began to form. Selecting and refining while trying to avoid literal rendering. The end result reminds me of flame and sky, the way heat distorts color and form. Flame can represent anything from loss to rebirth, hope, life, love and undying faith. Man's "discovery" of fire. . .
