A close up of the canvas texture of the fire painting. This session eloquently illustrates the risks of firepainting. After several days completing this painting, the canvas was burned through after only 3 minutes. Of the dozen or so photos taken, only two turned out.

"This image is my attempt to illustrate the process of overcoming the fears and negative patterns that come to dominate, intertwine and mask the essence of who we are and who we are striving to be."
