A sunrise or sunset can be ablaze with brilliance and arouse all the passion, all the yearning, in the soul of the beholder. ---Mary Balogh

Wietzie created "Sky Ablaze" with a painting knife using different mark making techniques, which resulted in a textured surface. Wietzie is inspired by JMW Turner and his use of colour. Wietzie experiments with loose handling, bold colours, and strikingly unconventional compositions. 

The emphasis in her paintings are on depicting different qualities of light and atmosphere in each scene. The intention is to create finished work that is abstracted and more expressional than representational.

The sides are painted.
