Last Dance

Happy New Year! This painting entitled "Last Dance" was inspired by one of those last days of fall when the landscape has suddenly turned to many shades of gray in preparation for winter but, every once in awhile you spot a small area of the intense colors still left from fall...the last dance of fall so to speak. You know how the Fall foliage in New England always feels like their should be an orchestra playing in the background as the colors dance. The morning I spotted this, it was cold and the air had a silvery quality. The light was bright and when it caught these last red leaves the result was intense...you couldn't keep your eyes off them. It was magnetic. As I painted this, I couldn't help but, constantly be reminded of one of my favorite books, Memoirs of a Geisha. Something about the care and beauty of the dance definitely inspired this. It measures 30" x 30". SOLD.
