Flames of passion reach
Not affected by the thorns
Freedom to create
Beneath the voice of critique
Only look for good.
Staring into fire
Bring the flames into your heart
Life. Waiting to be sketched.
Freedom from the sound of
I have written three “editorials” about this painting. And have determined that each was not really what I wanted to say. I kept trying to make them right, but every time I looked, I knew that the writing was “just not the one.” What can I write that will communicate? (What is the right write?) (Sorry)
I think that it is because, on a visual level, this doodle is too much like the flames of last month. The fire is just not what I wanted my doodle to communicate.
But, Art is communication. My doodles are abstract. I realize that I need to take this doodle to a different level. What is the metaphor?
Editorial Try Number 4 – This doodle represents the flames of passion that arise from our center, our core, which bring us through change and adversity, to new growth and renewed life.
Like the Phoenix, which rises from the ashes, we become new.
