Can Can Series
City Art Gallery in Greenville, NC is hosting their summer group show of European travels, August 11. Laurie Meyer and Shannon Smith are presenting new works from Italy, and I'm working on Paris pieces. I woke up one night and suddenly thought that I had never done Can Can Girls - and they are "so Paris". The first one was done stricly by past photos of dancers and has the quality of pastels, which I love. Then it happened that the Charleston Ballet was performing downtown for Bastille Day, and had live models for resource.
If you want a preview of the pieces before they head off to Greenville, please feel free to stop in at the gallery at 54 Broad Street.
"Oh La La" is 36x36 and will be at the gallery by the end of the month.
