People who know me well know that I am a closet hip hop fan. I love it. I had the pleasure of going to see the Gym Class Heroes Friday night at the Joint inside the Hard Rock. They were awesome. My friend Katharine and I were shaking our thing and pumping our fists through every song. If you haven't heard of them you should check them out.

I was inspired to create this piece by the Johnny Cash song Ring of Fire. The basic foundation for this piece was created by putting paper on the canvas with gesso to create texture. Then I used acrylics in red, blue and yellow mixed with gel medium in a semi gloss to give it a little bit of shine. This additive does not change the color of the acrylics.
So here's to everyone who is currently in the ring of fire and to those who have gotten burnt beyond recognition by the fire and finally for those of us who are hoping we can carefully jump back in one day with a new love.
