Fire Snake

Fire Snake

This painting was inspired by The Fire Snake, a sub-component of the Snake in the Chinese zodiac. It is specific to those born in 1977. Those with this sign are said to be sneaky, quick-witted, and sometimes explosive with their behaviors. They'll try and hide behind quite a charming veil but don't be fooled. These characters are brilliant, single-minded, and never ever fail - ever. They simply don't settle for second best and they have to win at all costs. They'll cruise through life and won't have to work too hard either. Despite their calculated ways, they can be genuinely loving.

The painting shows the Fire Snake entering from the top left. It has a "molten" feel to it due to the vibrant oranges and yellows. It creates the impression that the Fire Snake is burning his way across the canvas with ease.
