Tango


So I think I found the subject for my next painting series. Like my visit to Paris and seeing the Moulin Rouge inspired the series on the dancers, this year I'm visiting Buenos Aires, Argentina. After seeing many groups of Tango dancers performing in the streets, and because this is the "Birth place" of the Tango, that just kind of settles it.

I love the Tango, I learned just a little a few years ago when I was in a play called "Six Dances in Six Weeks" from a professional dancer and fell in love with it. It is, the most sensual, exciting dance there is.

Here too is a link to a video of this couple dancing dancing the Tango in the Street.

A Day in Paris


The image is a combination of sketches for my next oil/pastel series from my "all too short" time in Paris. As an artist, I soaked in as many memories of images my mind (and iPhone) could take. From the streets of Paris, to the Eiffel Tower, the Opera district, a day at the Louvre and of course Montmartre and the fabulous Moulin Rouge and the spectacular musical entertainment with glamorous costumes and dance performances.

I've long been a fan (as you can tell from my painting style) of the post-impressionist artists from the turn of the 20th century such as Toulouse-Lautrec, C├ęzanne, Van Gogh and Gauguin. So my next painting series will be of the memories, from the Can-can dancers, to my long walk to the Eiffel Tower, the city of Paris and of course, the Mouline Rouge!

Venetian Stars


This is the latest in the series titiled “My Blue World” and is also part of my “Internati
onal Painting” series. This was unfortunately the only oil painting from 2007. While I did produce some pastels, most of my creative time spent i 2007 was in the form of photography and theatre. 

The “My Blue World” series title gets its name from a 70s song called “Turn to Stone” by Electric Light Orchestra. Blue being one of my favorite colors, not a state of mind. ; )
