A lonely phoenix ponders the mysteries of the universe underneath the starry sky. I painted this during tropical storm Ernesto at my school. The power was out pretty much all day, leaving me with little else to do. I have not painted with my arcylics in a long time, so I thoroughly enjoyed making this picture. I painted it by the light of an electric lantern as the daylight faded from my windows. I have decided that I must paint more often.
