Phoenix by MAVnotMagic Phoenix by MAVnotMagic
Prints now available! Please let me know if there is a particular product you would like that I did not enable.

Gift for my martial arts teacher, Ricki, as a "swift recovery" present. She just under went hip replacement surgery and is doing quite well.
She's been a very big inspiration to me through out most of my life and one of the reasons I went back to the study of the martial arts.

I'm sure you can see one of the many meanings in the painting.

Detail shot:


Medium: Oil on canvas
Time: atleast 9 hours


Edit: Finally was able to present the painting to her two days after she got out of the hospital. She absolutely loved it but is having a bit of a dilemma as to where to hang it.
