Breathing Fire

Breathing Fire by Karen Gadient, 2014

Breathing Fire. Ink and digital.

There may be a great fire in our soul, yet no one ever comes to warm himself at it, and the passers-by see only a wisp of smoke. ― Vincent van Gogh

  1. All the blue–is that you putting the fire out?

  2. Love the Van Gogh quote that you paired with your work.

  3. Nice symmetry. It’s busy yet calming. Great work πŸ™‚

  4. It’s expressive, that’s for sure.

  5. I’m seeing the Mothman at the bottom centre

  6. Complex design, and beautiful colours, and has a kind of an eastern look. Suitable for a magic carpet maybe, but I guess they don’t do those at Societry6 – yet?!! πŸ˜‰ So when you create one of these, do you paint one half and then create a mirror image?

    • Thanks! πŸ™‚ Oh, they make rugs, but not square ones–alas! Yes, I plan out the design, then do one section and mirror it. Most of the time, it comes out as planned, although some ideas work out better than others.

  7. Delighted to have found your thought provoking blog Karen. Looking forward to regular visits here. Regards from Thom at the immortal jukebox (drop a nickel).
