For much of my life, "The Phoenix" has been my mascot. How many times can a person burn to ash and be reborn?
True to form, when I painted this, it looked like I had made a terrible mistake -- total mud. I set it aside to dry, fully intending to paint over it later. Somehow, while drying, the entire thing split apart and basically came back to life, better than what I hoped it would be. Some of the loveliest gradients I have ever painted demanded expression.
