Ignite by Amy Crook

Ignite by Amy Crook

Some fireworks to start off 2015!

This is the third in my Aglow series, taking the hues completely away from purple and black and setting them alight.

I want this painting to inspire you to coax the spark of hope and creativity in yourself to a proper bright bonfire. Ignite your passions, ignite your career, ignite yourself.

Ignite, 8″x8″ watercolor and duochrome watercolor on Fluid watercolor paper.

Above, you can see the rich red with the gorgeous metallic word both catching the sunlight and looking like they’re on fire. Below, you can see the piece in a frame, with perhaps the most accurate colors of the three images.

Step Into the Light by Amy Crook

Step Into the Light by Amy Crook

I challenged myself with this piece to start with pink instead of blue, and still make something that spoke to me visually the same way Invent the Universe does. The light ended up in the center, more of a tunnel than a pathway, inviting you to step through and see what it’s like out in the light.

Above, you can see the gold lettering catching the sunlight and putting the white of the paper to shame. Below, you can see the painting in its frame, waiting for the right wall.

Invent the Universe by Amy Crook

Invent the Universe by Amy Crook

“If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.”

– Carl Sagan

Whether you see a big bang for just the light at the end of the tunnel, this painting feels full of possibility. If you wish to succeed at any endeavor, you have to invent inside yourself the universe in which it can happen. What’s amazing to me is that you can do it, that people can bring whole worlds to life inside themselves and then make them a part of our world, as well.

What do you want in your Universe?
