I like the 'grid'. This one stirs the imagination, it's like a series of superimposed pictures, a kind of 'before, during and after the fire'.

I like that. The fire burns off the lies and illusions, then the truth is revealed. Thanks, Eric.

When I look at this and observe the title, Edgar Allen Poe appears in my head. Is all that we see or seem, but a dream within a dream? One of my favorite poems. I used to have the whole thing memorized but I've forgotten it as I've grown in my years :giggle: I should read it again soon. But really this is a lovely painting. The colors are beautiful and the technique you used to have them all seem to melt and trickle together, definitely a great touch. Sometimes we can't help but wonder if everything we see around us is real or perhaps just illusions created by our minds.
