Invitation to the Dance
This painting (36"x48," acrylic on canvas) was shear joy to work on. There are many layers of paint incorporated in this piece, which provided endless pleasure to manipulate and also creates visual interest from a distance and when you move closer to view the painting.
After studying ballet for close to 40 years, I often see trees as dancing figures which explains the title of this piece. While going on walks, I often marvel at the trees swaying in the breeze, and the dancing rhythms of the branches. This sentiment goes back decades to when I used to sit on the rocks, with a sketchbook or journal in hand, under the trees at the end of the street of my childhood home.
Acrylic on canvas painting size: 36"x48" on gallery wrap canvas with white sides.
