This is another painting in my series of dancers in motion. The paintings are inspired by attending dance recitals that my great niece, Alysha, dances in. Alysha loves dancing and has been learning many types of dance techniques at "Traditions Academy of Dance" in Whitby, On. r They have an annual recital that Alysha has the opportunity to perform on stage.
The dancers at the recitals and competitions are beautifully dressed, at many different levels, and all trying hard to show their best dance. The colours are bright, the motions are swift and flowing.
I have been attempting to be more free and abstract with my paintings. On these paintings I use Sennelier oil pastels and tried to capture the feelings, movements and flow of the dancers, instead of concentrating on details and photo realism. I won a Special Merit - juror's award for this one.
There are more of these paintings shown on my blog further below on this blog.
I was fortunate enough today to win "Honourable Mention' award at the Art Guild of Scarborough Spring show for a painting I painted plein air at Edward's Gardens, (near entrance) this past summer. The show is on today and finishes tomorrow at 5:00 pm. I will be there again around 4:00 pm tomorrow.
These are pictures I took of a 2 handle cross cut lumber saw. The saw is 5 1/2 ft long with a long black handle at each end. It was a commission for someone I met at the campsite. I painted a possible story on the saw. I start on the left hand side of the saw with 2 men using the saw to cut down an old dead tree. Then 2 men using the saw to cut the tree in pieces. Then a picture of the owner of the saw with his tractor hauling wood to the campsite he built. Continuing along to a shelter with people eating outdoors, their cabin, entrance to the Black River, to a group of people sitting around a campfire. It was a fun project.
