When I started this painting, I was thinking of the works of one of my friends that is called "Red Sky." Even though this has a very different look, I always think of her when I look at it.

"Lava Sky" is a contrast of dark and bright, of explosiveness against a night sky over dark and jagged mountain slopes. Bright white surf contrasts with a daylight bright aqua sea below.

In some ways, the deep red and green themes may make you think of Christmas colors. You may feel festive looking at it. Or it may take you to your own private memories.

There are many active forces at play in this work, maybe even some quiet ones.
