Paint Out Loud...the story behind the art
I was interested in painting emotion. And I was interested in painting figures
I hired two dancers and spent a couple of hours with them - me with a camera . I put on great music and let them express themselves. They started moving around, "warming" up to the music and the presence of one another.
I stayed silent and out of the way and took lots of photos and at that time I wasn't thinking about how they would look in a painting - I was also lost in the music and in the movement of these two dancers.
Slowly they began to come together and instead of poses, they let the music lead them, and they moved and danced and it was wonderful.
"Two" is one of the paintings that came from that session. I actually love it.
When I began painting "Two" I decided that I wanted darker colors - not bright, and as the painting developed I decided that it was important to lose some of the lines and shapes that would separate the figures. In places I wanted it to work as one figure. I feel it is a very intimate painting.
I painted it about 6 years ago and it has been one of the pieces that I decided I did not want to sell. Now, 2017, I am taking it off my wall and offering it for sale.
It is 24 x 36, oil painting, unframed. Shipping is included and the price is $825. This is at present, a part of my collection that I am offering...available only through this offering for now. If you are interested, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I want to find a good home for this wonderful painting, "Two".
