Title:    “Eye of the Fiery Storm”

 

Description:    The “Eye of the Fiery Storm” exploded out of me after painting snow filled landscapes for a couple of months, while I was also facing a lot of emotional challenges.

 

As much as I love the snow, alpine, trees and all those winter wonderlands, I also crave vibrant colours and letting the paint flow.

 

The “Eye of the Fiery Storm” started with a vow not to use white and to play with mixing different colours to form something new. It was driven by the need to reassess my perspective.

 

The greenish background you can see on the canvas came about by mixing Matisse Emerald and Naples Yellow Light. I instantly fell in love with its soft intensity. There is a calmness to the colour and when the fiery reds and yellows were layered over it, it was the perfect reminder that the calm is the constant.

 

Sometimes the crazy, emotionally charged times hinder our sight of it, but eventually they blow over and we can find that calm within again.

 

I hope the “Eye of the Fiery Storm” serves as a gentle and calming reminder of what the true constant is.
