The Rise of the Phoenix

Title: The Rise of the Phoenix
Size: 20 x 24
Medium: Oil on gallery wrapped canvas

See tonight's eBay auction for purchase.

This original oil has a bright underpainting of oranges, reds and blues. When dry I layered it richly with the highest quality oils, Winsor Newton Artist oils, and the brilliant creature is emerges.
I've always liked the notion of this mythical bird. The rebirth of the bird from the flames is a great metaphor for so many of us in so many ways and tells a story of hope and rejuvination. Hope it inspires you!
