This is a very special painting for me both in terms of meaning and artistically. First of all it is the first painting where I used acrylic colours. Somehow the use of this type of colours felt right. And I believe the result shows for itself. I won't go into further technical details but acrylic colours seem to be my new medium of choice for my paintings.

Now leaving out the artistic talk, the subject of this painting is the fabled mythical fire bird, the Phoenix. A bird that has become a symbol of rebirth and renewal. Whenever it dies it burns completely; its ashes the only remains, only to rise again in a blaze of glory and defiance...
