Burning desire

Maree  Clarkson

Tarlton, South Africa

Artist's Description

Watercolour on Moleskine 200gsm watercolour paper – 12″ × 8″

“When you discover your mission, you will feel its demand. It will fill you with enthusiasm and a burning desire to get to work on it.”
W. Clement Stone – American best selling Author – 1902-2002

Sometimes my work is inspired by a sight or sound, sometimes by a few words. In this instance, it is the many veld fires we have here in South Africa in winter and once I had finished the work, it evoked a feeling of a “burning desire” and the words followed. Or should I have named it “This little bird” …?
