Bourbon Street Tango is a work that resulted from a trip to New Orleans in February. I was walking in the French Quarter and happened upon a group of musicians and a dancing couple. I joined the crowd to watch them perform for the next hour and bought their CD. I play their CD when I want to paint something that has movement such as these dancers. I actually dance while I am painting which leads to quite a few water bucket spills and paint splashes on myself my surroundings.
This piece hangs in the Norfolk Academy until May 8th. Come enjoy their art show and sale.
