"Dancing On The Moon", oil on sheet canvas, 8" x 6" (matt 19" x 17")
Private Collection

 

"Dancing on the Moon" is one of a series of retro-romantic paintings influenced by our culture's passing glances at prior decades - as well as a love of dance and the formal aspect of shapes created by two figures interacting. The dark landscape is reminiscent of moonlight and far away imaginary places.

 

   

Series:

Little Romances

The nostalgic beauty of earlier decades gives form to our need for stability in a
rapidly changing and indecisive world. "Little Romances" is a loosely woven
series of retro-romantic paintings, frequently presented as "social dance" with
elegant attire and proper demeanor. We have always looked back,
beyond memory, randomly selecting repairs for contemporary life.
