Passion in Painting
Painting is my passion but dancing has always been my heart. I love to incorporate my two loves into my work. So many qualities of the specific art forms reflect each other. There is theme, shape, movement, color, style, and emotion. When I choreographed, I loved to create dances that told a story, that were rooted in emotion, that had a message. When I paint, I want to create art that tells a story, that is rooted in emotion, that has a message. I especially love to paint “stories” that are passionate. I love to paint pictures of dance and what dance is more passionate than Tango? Below is one of my two new Tango paintings. This is 16” x 20” and is watercolor on paper. Interested?
So this is my recent abstract which I decided mid way through was to become an abstraction of The Golden Triangle...hence the title Triangle of Gold: Where the Three Rivers Meet. If you look closely at the center of the painting, you can see the buildings with Highmark and UPMC towering over the others. Mount Washington sits on the right with its incline and connecting bridges, while the lower hill sits on the left. What do you see?
