My “Burning Sky over Park Street” painting was featured in Bristol Post after a fire broke out at a Bristol University building near Park Street on 6th January 2018, days after I finished painting.
On the evening of 6th January, I saw photos from the scene on media and I was astonished by the similarity to what I’d just painted and by the fact it happened in exactly the same place. I posted a tweet and the story was immediately picked up by a Bristol Post journalist. You can read the full story here: http://www.bristolpost.co.uk
Most of the time, we paint events that already happened. But, from time to time, art runs ahead of events.
