Heart of Fire came about whilst painting a commission for a local stud. I was trying to think of a way to keep my style "loose" so that I would not get too tight whilst doing the commission which was fairly exacting work. Suddenly one day an entire painting popped into my head. It was too enticing an idea to let go, so I rushed to my supplier to pick a up a suitable canvas.
Heart of Fire is the result. The composition is totally out of my head, and it has been accomplished with the use of rags, plastic bags, finger tips and anything else that would achieve the look I wanted. It was to have movement, warmth and a sense of drama and definitely not too much detail.
