My smoke study image series has always been intended to draw the viewer in and leave them with a bit of an open concept in terms of allowing them to interpret the piece and discover what in it jumps out to them rather than try and lead them to see anything in particular. I enjoy working on them immensely as each one takes me on a journey of self discovery, applying my own unique overlay to color combinations and tones as the incense smoke starts out light grey and I develop it from there using what shapes the wind furies give me. With Born of Fire, I had been looking at a copper vase that a good friend gave us from her travels to Pakistan which must have been influencing my mindset at the time. So, I see an ifrit dancing in the flames. Ready to interact with something just off frame. Hopefully, you looked first at the image before reading the story so you were able to make up your own mind.
