The title of this picture is Bone Flare. Flare has multiple meanings, but my idea is a calcified burst of flame, as if a fire had been frozen or crystalized mid burn.
I like the poetry of that idea, but had to play with verbiage a bit to get it right. Frozen Flame, or Crystal Flame were casualties of the title search, and seemed too corny to stand. I think Bone Flare has a nice lilt, though.
And so that’s the title of this work, and the base to which words get appended for variations. From this composition three others readily came:
- Gray Bone Flare, black and white, and tonally similar
- Gray Powder Bone Flare, which is also black and white, but far lighter
- Powder Bone Flare, on a green background and tonally similar to Gray Powder Bone Flare
