Flame on the Sun. Spherical continuous line. Mick Burton, 1972

Flame on the Sun. Spherical single continuous line drawing, with complementary reds and greens expressing explosive violence. Mick Burton, continuous line artist.

The Solar Flares leaping sometimes 1000 miles up from the surface of the sun have always excited me, since my cousin showed me sun spots projected by her reversed telescope. Just finished reading “Surely You’re Joking Mr. Feynman” by Richard Feynman, the Nobel Prizewinner for physics. He took up art for a time and one of his pictures was “The Magnetic Field of the Sun”. He said that he wanted to draw something beautiful that no artist would think to draw.
