Dance the Bright Flamenco

Standard

“Dance the bright flamenco.   Let the music ring.   Dance around with graceful steps and move to the Spanish beat.  Red silk roses pinned in precious hair and glossy gowns fly as you throw your hands up and dance, just dance the bright flamenco.”

Here’s the final installation of my Flamenco triptych.  I must admit to feeling a bit sorry that the project is finished.  I have other ideas in the pipeline, but nothing to start straight away…. Hmmm.  What to do! What to do!

Anyway, I digress – I hope you like it?  Feel free to look at the others in the series here.

Play it again Sam – more arty inspiration

Standard

I finally finished the second picture in my Flamenco series (there will be three).  Again, I’ve taken inspiration from my new home and the painting was completed in watercolour.  I hope you like it!

“Dance is music made visible.”

When I started this blog, I promised to include some of my artwork.  I’ve been thinking about it for a while and discovered that I’ve given the pieces I’m most proud of away.  After all, art is designed to be seen, and I am grateful that some of it hangs on the walls and friends and family.  (I am pretty sure they’re there all the time – not just when I come round!)  So this left me with a bit of a dilemma.  What can I share on here?

Well, given that I’m now in Spain, I decided to look to my new home for inspiration.  Here’s my latest creation in watercolour inspired by Flamenco dancing.  I hope you like it!

There will be more to follow I promise – I just can’t promise when.
