Its been a while, and yes, this one is still on the easel having flames wrapped around him much like the Phoenix rising from the ashes..
In fact, now that I have written those words, that’s how I feel, a phoenix. Many hours has been spent on the what if’s and why’s which, on reflection seems to have been a complete waste of time. The other day, I attended an event which had my imagination buzzing creating an excitement I have not felt in many years. I could see a way forward of combining visual art with performing art, integrating the Dance World into the world of Painting.
The first step in this plan is to complete 15 paintings in the next 12 months, bringing to fruition an idea I have playing with for the past few months. We are talking hand painted silk and dancers and to keep you in the loop, I will post each outcome as and when they appear.
Back to this painting,, yep, starting to like these flames,, its going to work. Also got Painting 3 and four of this series planned (Earth and Wind), and pretty sure got water done and dusted as well. There’s a painting recently finished which I really don’t like, and it would be an easy thing to do to make it the ‘Water’ component to the series.
