"Earth’s distant orb appeared the smallest light that twinkles in the heaven; whilst round the chariot’s way innumerable systems rolled and countless spheres diffused an ever-varying glory. It was a sight of wonder: some were hornèd like the crescent moon; some shed a mild and silver beam like Hesperus o'er the western sea; some dashed athwart with trains of flame, like worlds to death and ruin driven; some shone like suns, and as the chariot passed, eclipsed all other light." From "Queen Mab" by Percy Bysshe Shelley (1813)

The Folk Art Of Cactus County #17
When I started this picture it was meant to be another red, white and black painting but after completing the border I got the idea of doing a skull made of fire, so threw out the original idea and just went for it. It’s acrylic on canvas, 36cm x 45cm. This might be the last painting I post for a while as I start the new day job next week.
