The image I’m posting today is another example of a painting inspired by dance. In this case it was 3 female dancers caught “in flight” that inspired the underpainting for this piece I call “Nature Rising”. Once the underpainting has established itself, I no longer look at the models and concentrate instead on honoring the dynamics established by the underpainting. Because I believe that in art, the truth of the artist ALWAYS surfaces, I have faith that at the end of the day, the explosive movement of the dance that originally inspired me will shine through.
My project “Heartbeat” will give me a chance to explore this philosophy even further. We’re making GREAT headway and almost to my goal amount needed to fund the project. Time is coming to an end so I’m hoping people who want to participate but for some reason or other have been procrastinating will realize it’s time to donate!
