town green

 

as a bird in flight

light on her bared feet

her dance

her expression 

 

no music

the crowd quiets

no sound

 

leaps

dips

spins

and twirls

 

mesmerizing 

the unexpected spectators 

 

in a trance

unleashing her soul

into a beautiful performance

of unrehearsed steps 

captivating the audience

they with bated breaths

fearing 

her triple whirl

might end in a fall

 

the grand finale 

a pirouette and bow

leaving all speechless

and in awe 

 

now

continue on

pass the town green

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

“Although I paint recognizable subjects - people, animals, store windows, and landscapes - I do not intend for my art to be realistic. I take what I see and try to make it more intense. Color is my focus and through blending and layering I strive to make my images radiate from the canvas.

 

My favorite subjects are cinched waist Victorian ladies, dancing couples, Billy (my adorable King Charles Cavalier), wild animals, and scenes from my travels. I also love transforming tiny sepia family photos into large full color portraits. I paint in both oil and acrylic, preferring the sensuality of the former, but deferring to the relative odorlessness of the latter when painting at home. My other favorite activity is gardening, which in its own way allows me to play with shapes and colors.”
