Painting Movement, Music and Dance

This painting found a nice home last week so I thought I would repost this.

 

With the onset of the north wind finally dipping its fingers into Florida’s damp wetness,

dancing comes to mind.

Dancing of the spirit,

the tribe, passion,

and the feeling of freedom.

Music and dance have been muses to me as long as I can remember.  Part of the joy of painting is moving the brush in rhythm to the music.  Moving back and forth away from the canvas and feeling the flow of where the painting is going. Having taken bellydance classes and even taught a few, the movement of the body to rhythm, can help connect the mind to that primal place of healing and connection.

Here I challenged myself to paint in black and white as I usually get off on so much color! Working in black and white allows an artist to work in pure values and tones.  This also has become a mixed media painting as I have added some papers, including music sheet bits and patterns from Morocco.
