This is an abstract work but as I painted, without any specific theme or choice of colors I began to see, emerging, the image of a bird, rising upward. The colors of fire, red in various shades predominated. I began to see a Phoenix rising from the ashes of a conflagration. I strengthened the emerging bird figure and reaffirmed the fiery color in flashing shades of red, pink and light earth tones.
