A heart made of stone
Callous and bone
Fracture and tear it out
To let it go
And to think
I called it my own
And I would have never thought
The pain could grow

So I'll break it
Knowing what you said
The pain is what you make it
Sadly you are so mistaken
I will take you with a grain
And step into the changes
Throw away the empty heart

Your vision with this piece is a strength for the piece. Strength and unpredicability of fire comes through within this piece. It can give strength to a person, or angel in this case, but it can work against the person wielding it. The technique is very well done because it shows the 'angel' is trying to control it's fiery power. Who knows, she may have taken on a 'demonic' presence to save humanity. She may have gained a new power of the fire. Either way, she portrays a great power and long life. Gaining the power of one of the four natural elements is now a part of her. The background goes to show that the elements are just starting to accept her as a wielder of fire. The impact of this piece strikes an emotional portion of humanity. We are indeed a fiery bunch of people. Strong yet unpredicable. The impact of this piece goes to show how well a person, or people, can stand up to their own fears withh courage.

This is breathtaking! 
I love this version of a Phoenix. Is she falling? Or is she rising? My mind says it could be either.

I like that your work makes me think.
