"This painting portrays the yin and yang that is a candle. One half is the lightness of the candle burning bright, illuminating the shadows and exposing their secrets. The other is the darkness and mystery that exists when the candle is extinguished."

This painting is not framed but the sides of the canvas are painted so a frame is not required if that is your preference. It is coated with a gloss finish varnish. This painting was completed on January 22, 2013

You know those little sketches that people create mindlessly during boring meetings? I paint those. Just like you see kittens in clouds or Elvis in a potato chip, I see images in my doodles. It's called pareidolia (that's your word of the day). I find it quite interesting how a random collection of lines can turn into a petrified cowboy, ie. Eternal Sunset. So I tend to work on the abstract and surreal spectrum of painting since doodles are rarely realistic. Like pretty much every artist ever, I've had a passion for art ever since I can remember. But rather than go to art school I became a mechanical engineer since it promised a much more stable economic future. And it did just that while at the same time allowing me to pursue painting. In between paintings I spend my time reading art books and blogs, watching Youtube videos, and watching reruns of Bob Ross to grow my artistic talents.
