THE FLAME (c) Drew Brophy Day 3 of #50Paintings Paint Study Series October 28 2015FOR 50 DAYS, I’M CREATING 50 PAINT STUDIES that reflect 50 things that fascinate me. 

I’m painting whatever comes to me each morning. 

You might love ’em, you might hate ’em, but either way, I hope they invoke a feeling for you.


This painting is #3 of 50 in the #50Paintings series:

Titled THE FLAME– 11″x 14″ paint pen on canvas board.


I have always been fascinated with fire; I love its warm glow in the night.

Imagine how different it was before electricity, or in the dark ages when the night was feared.

I love the darkness of the night, I believe we need it and we should embrace it.

We have many candles in our house and we often sit by the glow of a fire in our backyard.

It has a certain energy, primal, and soothing.  It’s like the moths who travel far, mesmerized by the light in the darkness, they are drawn to it even if it burns their wings.

What do you enjoy about the glow of fire?  How does it make you feel?  Share in the comments.

This painting study is available for purchase SOLD to David G. of Alexandria, VA.  One of my goals with this series is to make original art affordable for those who want it.   If interested in adding tomorrow’s to your collection, please email or text or call 949-678-8133 asap!
