This piece was painted on a boxed canvas - using texture medium to create a 3 dimension effect, colours used metallic copper, paynes grey, with a touch of burgundy. Size 60x50cm

This is interesting too. Very reminescent of Aussie bush fires.

I really dig this. It reminds me of my experiments in jewelry school with fire burnishing copper...Thanks for bringing back good memories. ;)

Thanks Carol - that is where the inspiration came from - after bush fires the plant life that grows back is awesome - that's why I called it refining fire
I'm so glad it brought back good memories for you Pearl

I don't know about bush fires but it did bring to mind the 'fire' color of tall grasses when they mature in the hot summer sun.
Nice job!

Your painting certainly brings the picture of the devastation of bushfires Zoe. We have already had a couple of days in S.A. this Spring when we had 27 different bushfires burning throughout our State. Well done with your painting. :clap: :clap: :thumbsup:

Thanks Dragica, Jon, Val, Drew & Dreamz
Oh Val I heard about those fires, we have a few here in Victoria too. Looks like it's going to be a very long hot dry summer - must go out soon and buy a portable air conditioner - anything over 30 deg celcius - and I melt.
Happy painting everyone
