‘Temple in Fire’ – Day 27/365

‘Temple in Fire’ –  Day 27/365

I still remember driving back from my first 10-day stint at Afrika Burn, 10 days of breathtaking karoo sunsets, and driving over the neck into Camps Bay slap bang into this sky… and just thinking.. well f*&# me. I stopped the car, got out and sat there staring at this violent ignition of life until it faded to grey. Then I drove home with red pinpricks in my vision thinking.. does the ‘Nature of the Burn’ follow you home..? Once you’ve seen it.. you really can’t un-see it.. (whatever ‘it’ may be for you).
And perhaps even…
.
Once you’ve found warmth in art, you will always crave that type of heat.
Once you’ve felt a true connection, you’ll want to leave the lonely path for good.
Once you’ve walked into the centre of your heart, you’ll never return to life in its periphery.
.
When it comes to the Burn, for me anyways, finding the things I needed to find, just that Once was enough.
.
Still, I can’t wait to see the temple burn again, to shed more, to unsee more.

Ps: This is the first of my miniature paintings painted on our homemade stretched canvases. A special little painting for me indeed
