Roaring King -
Canvas (48"x72") 2018. Dallas, TX.
Recently I spent some time in a beautiful home
located in Waikoloa Village, Big Island (Hawaii). The Big Island
has 11 of 13 climactic zones. There were grasslands similar to
the African Savannah close to where I was staying. Luckily when
I was there, large brush fires were running through the
grasslands. What I noticed was that due to wind gusts fire
jumped over patches of grass and they looked like golden islands
in a dark burnt field. I found my perfect setting for the King
roaring after a meal. I will be adding orange fire running
through the grass in the background.
