Two paintings

Before playing chess with my friend I photographed two paintings in his apartment (see pictures below).

I like both of them and hope that you’ll like them too.

However, I was unable to find out who is the author of the painting “Fire Within”. If any of you know it please tell me.

Some funny quotes.
