One rearing stallion and his herd of six

Aflame they rise,
like a magic dance.
Patterns of heat create life, beauty
A bonfire to revel in.

~ Kim McElroy

In Bonfire, seven horse spirits emerge from the patterns of the flames. Usually when I create paintings in my Horses in the Elements Series, I look for natural formations that are shaped like horses. Bonfire is unique in that I didnt start with a planned composition, but rather the horses revealed themselves in the patterns of the flames as I drew them. The title, Bonfire is meant convey that these horse spirits are reveling in a wild celebration of the beneficial and celebratory expression of fire.
