At The Ursula Academy For The Supernaturally Gifted, Fledgling Firestarter Nicholas Burns Arrives On His First Day With His Mother And A Necessary Safety Precaution.  Oil on canvas, 18″x24″.  For sale on etsy.

This particular theme had so many possibilities.  At first I was going to depict Nicholas standing at the front of his class on ‘Speech Day’ as a nervous wreck.  There was going to be a trash can on fire in the corner and a very concerned teacher unsure of how to deal with it.  The idea was that Nicholas had yet to master his pyrokinetic abilities which had a tendency to flare up during moments of anxiety.  It got a little complicated so I opted for his mom and a fire extinguisher instead.  That way I could also show some of the exterior of the academy and the pretty hollyhocks.

  1. I love it, and I hope someday there will be a book about Ursula Academy, like Lucy Crisp!
