"Masquerade," 6" x 8", portrait of three young dancers on stage, inspired by the young ladies at Broadway Dance Co (where The Princess studies). This is acrylics on museum quality panel and is available to the first asking nicely for $329 - inquiries can come to moi!
Last nite I found myself with a couple hours to do whatever I wanted. That was a tough one!! I headed straight to the easel and created Masquerade - it's time on the easel was relatively short lived, but this composition had been in my head for over a month, and the idea itself has been percolating for several years.
But inquiring minds always want to know how long did this take to paint?
The painting process cannot be measured or valued by a number of minutes. Making art is a lifelong process of seeing and questioning and filtering and experimenting, building up cumulative knowledge and filling those visual memory banks.
So my answer to "how long did this take" is that it's taken my entire life.
Which means tomorrow's painting will take a little more time than this. And so on and so on and so on.
