She Remembers the Fire Inside
Acrylic on Paper, 8"x10"
This painting is from the Thursday Sweet Treat prompt, "the warmth of the fire inside."
I know it's odd that it isn't all warm shades. You think warmth and fire and you think red and yellow and orange. But I was laying in bed staring at the shadows on the ceiling, and all of a sudden saw patterns of peach and blue. It reminded me of paisley or chandeliers.
And then I thought it also reminded me of reflections, of smoke, and said to myself, there's the prompt!
I like also how the fire is hidden in the subtlety of the colors. There's a pale fire, too. A white fire is hotter than the red one. And I like the veneer of sophistication here, but the hint that there's something burning inside.
I don't know how much meaning this painting has in my life... it kind of looks like it has nothing to do with my life, although I usually take lessons from whatever I've learned or experienced lately. It almost seems like I am making up a life, a hollywood life of glamor.
Eh, whatever the meaning, I still think it's pretty. And everything doesn't always have to be meaningful.
