With eyes closed she juggles the flames urging them to rise higher, now twist, now turn this way, now larger, now smaller. She has perfect control as her flames weave around her, wanting her warmth, wanting to rise up into the air. With a mystical smile, she feels her creations spiral up in the air.The fourth in a series of eight pictures I made for Christmas Gifts in 2006. And she is my absolute favorite. Even though I dislike bright colors, I love how she turned out. Instead of having her dance, I decided to have the flame dance around her. I based her losely on how I think an Indian fire goddess would look: the colors, the pose, the dancing flames. I wonder if there is a goddess like her somewhere.Colored pencil with black ink outlines.
