Full painting

Top of the day to ya!
And yes, this is my take on the famous Matisse painting “the dance”. It’s in Homage and it was a gift to myself to paint. I changed it a little, of course, it’s my own expression….and I wanted my girls to be forming a heart shape when they danced instead of a circle. I hope you enjoy.

here are the quotes that I worked with while creating my own world:
Beyond the ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
***
There is a vitality,
a life force,
an energy,
a quickening
that is translated through you into action
and because there is only one you in all of time,
this expression is unique.
And if you block it,
it will never exist through
any other medium and it will be lost.
The world will not have it.
It is not your business to determine how good it is
nor how valuable,
nor how it compares with other expressions.
It is your business to
keep it yours clearly and directly
to keep the channel open.
You do not have to believe in yourself
or your work.
You have to keep open and aware directly to
the urges that motivate you.
Keep the channel open.
No artist is pleased.
There is no satisfaction whatever,
at any time.
There is only a queer divine dissatisfaction,
a blessed unrest
that keeps us marching
and makes us more alive
then the
others.
Martha Graham
to Agnes de Mille
in “Dance to the Piper”

Have a great day.
See you in the clearing.
