A MOMENT IN THE DANCE


     
































The idea for this picture started during a movement session that happened to be on my    birthday.  I wrote:

‘The thing that particularly struck me about the dancing was towards the end when we were dancing together.  Suddenly there seemed to be a very strong energy that kind of fused us together in a particular way and then it dissolved and then fused us together in a different way.  I really want to try and paint it as it reminded me of three trees growing together.’

I remember it took me a long time to get the three figures just right.  To get the sense of movement and yet to encapsulate the moment.
