"Candle Fire" 12x12 Acrylic on Gessobord, PPF

This week I am continuing to paint with Fluorescent Neon acrylics, but of course you cannot see the effects without a black light! Impasto technique, thick paint, applied with a palette knife.  Happy PPF!

Auction on DPW: "Candle Fire"
12x12 Acrylic on Gessobord

12x12 Candle Fire. Abstract Acrylic on Gessobord, painted for a challenge on DPW. I started painting an innocent candle for the challenge, but then the wind picked up and the flames started to get away from me, causing the room to erupt in a raging inferno, at least in my mind. Living in Southern California we are always aware of fire danger. Never leave a candle burning without watching it very carefully. In fact, I have electric candles, just to be safe.
