What inspired me?
I'm doing a 4 part project involving the 4 basic elements: fire, water, wind and earth.
So for FIRE, I chose to do ADELE's portrait...Her song 'Set Fire to the Rain' inspired me to use candles and fire as my painting materials...but why?
To me, ADELE was probably singing about the pain of a lost relationship. Rain may be a metaphor for her tears she cried, and she is setting fire to it to burn and destroy her pain. I've used blue candles to represent tears, and by setting fire to them, they melt and flow into each other - "Watched it pour as I touched your face..." - and they form a portrait of ADELE.

Prank-Loving Reporter Arrested For Interrupping Adele's Grammy Win
The man who received a slap from WILL SMITH after attempting to kiss him at the Russian premiere of MEN IN BLACK III was arrested on Sunday (10Feb13) for gatecrashing ADELE's Grammy Award-winning moment.
Vitalii Sediuk has been identified as the prankster who stepped up to the microphone as Adele was making her way to the stage to claim her Best Pop Solo Performance from Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull.
The Ukrainian reporter and publicity grabber managed to mumble a congratulations to the singer before Lopez brushed him aside and then watched as he walked off the stage behind her.
Sediuk reportedly made his way past security at the event at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and took up a seat in the second row, which had been allocated to a tardy Adam Levine. He then jumped onstage when Adele won.
He was detained by security shortly after his prank and arrested, reports The Hollywood Reporter. He is due in court on trespassing charges next month
Aubrey is crazy into Adele right now which I love. It's so cute hearing her belt her songs in the car. This is where she likes to sing the most. At first she didn't know if she wanted to learn this song because she thought it was too slow, but now it's one of her favorites. :)
We do not own right to this song - just love singing along.
