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.

Another student at the unusual Ursula Academy.  There may be more….we’ll see.  By the way, I did re-watch ‘The Fury’ and was just as terrified as I was when I first saw it back in the 80’s.   Especially the end.  I can’t even talk about it.
