Preparing To Dance II

Preparing To Dance II             oil on linen          8" x 10"
As we continue to put together our new house and my studio space, I seem to find more time to paint during weekends. So here is another "Saturday painting" as there were no appointments or workers or shopping for today. This is again a painting from the St. Ignacio Festival a couple of weeks ago in Boise. Sometimes you know a scene will work as a painting right away, and this was one of those. The light was strong and the whites reflected all the color around these two Oinkari dancers. I took photos of my progress, but can't say for sure whether they're decent. If so, I will create a slideshow of the process and post it in a few days. 'Til then, hope you are enjoying your weekend and thanks for continuing to visit my work.

The first thing that hit me when I saw this was look at those beautiful whites.
