This acrylic painting is part of my "Hammered & Hewn Series." I start with a solid panel, then add a sculptural molding compound to create the effects of metal backgrounds. I want every part of my painting to have purpose and texture. ​The beauty of decorative concept and design put forth by Archibald Knox in the early 1900s was a huge inspiration for me on this piece. His pewter and silver designs and work for Liberty & Co. in London are examples of excellence.

This verse is my adaptation from a longer mantra "Sky Above me, Earth Below me, Fire Within me" and the internet isn't sure who to give credit to at this point, so author unknown.

Sky Above, Earth Below, Fire Within
