    "Fire Storm" started out as a play day painting.  A simple acrylic pour on a birch panel.  I usually add to my poured paintings to bring them to life.  I stared at this one for quite awhile trying to see some new direction.  I turned it every which way...truly ready to just give up on inspiration.  Then I saw it.  Global warming inspired. " Fire Storm" was born.

    The real surprise for me (fluid art is full of surprises) was the fire became a living, breathing, menacing creature. Painting in skeletal remains of forest trees, and drifts of smoke brought out the beast within the storm.

    Sometimes letting your painting take on its own life is exhilarating!
