I await joyous surprises while working, an awakening of the materials that I work with and that my spirit develops. -Odilon Redon

I'm feeling a little Redon in the studio right now, both in color and application of paint. I didn't intend to paint ala Redon, in fact I just recognized it this afternoon. This painting that I'm working on is about dance and painting. I was inspired by the dancers and dance that Susan Lloyd put together after visiting my studio. She choreographed a beautiful dance about what I do. Now if only the painting can be half as good as the dance!
With this painting I want to capture what they were conveying in their dance; the inspiration, tension, joy and generosity. I've struggled a little bit but it's getting there.

Below is a painting by Odilon Redon called, Two Girls Among Flowers. I love the dreamy atmosphere.
