Ready to Hang
I find inspiration in the passionate poses and gestures of Flamenco dancers. It's a great subject to paint.
In this painting, while not as expressionistic as I usually prefer to go, I made an attempt to capture the feeling behind the pose. The background was made to be more minimal, putting the focus on the figure. Warm reds and oranges on the foreground, balance nicely with the cool hues in the background.
This original is painted in oil on 11X14 wood panel that's 1/2 inch thick. Keyhole on back of panel allows painting to be hung as is, sung to the wall. Sides of panel have been painted black. A double coat of varnish has been applied over entire piece for extra protection, producing a lush gloss finish.
Thank you for viewing my painting.
