Oil on linen on MDF

I've been wanting to paint a burning match for a while now. A burning ambition... haha! Obviously it's a bit tricky painting it from life! I just lit a few matches and watched them burn then painted from memory as best as I could. I was fascinated by the black "shadow" left from the flame. A friend looking at this saw the shape of a bird in the flame I had painted, so it naturally seemed apt to title it "Phoenix".
