Oil on Canvas
14 x 10
I love dance! Every week I’m faithfully tuned in to “So You Think You Can Dance“. I’ve seen every episode since the beginning. I love movement and music and story telling. I love that dance can move the soul and touch you without any words spoken. I love the way it inspires me in a million different ways. So, it’s no wonder I keep returning to one of my favorite subjects over and over again.
I danced for a time during my late 20’s and early 30’s. It was the first time I really saw myself as a visual artist. I had the opportunity to choreography (my first love) and do some exciting things. To me, choreography was like painting on a huge canvas, so much fun!
Speaking of choreography, our creative little family reads together in the evening and we’re currently working on a book by a famous choreographer, Twyla Tharp, called “Creative Habit“. If you are a “creative” and you haven’t read this book–buy it! It’s filled with wisdom from an amazing and talented woman.
