World on Fire
Monday, August 7th, 2017
The implied full title of this is Sometimes I Just Want to Set the World on Fire, but I decided to go with a slightly less nihilist version for the finished piece.
The sky glows gold, while orange and red rise up from the smoldering ruins, a fog of smoke wreathing broken towers and burnt-out towns. Who knows what apocalypse visited this place, whether it’s a scene from a distant future or a less-distant one, well, some of us will find out eventually.
It’s a little Mad Max, a little Fallout, and a little beautiful even in its desolation.
Above, you can see a close-up of the half-destroyed linked towers and the tiny birds of prey flocking around them. Below, the painting is in a temporary frame, waiting for you to give it a permanent home.
