Artist's description:

The critical thing to show with “dance” is motion and emotion. I always try to capture both whenever I depict a person or couple dancing. Slow Dance Five is a semi-abstract painting. The main feature of the painting is the way that the emphasis is on the female.... her eyes closed and her arm around her partner. The man almost fades into the background. Here I try to show the subject of the work but still leave something to the imagination of the viewer.This is a one-of-a-kind, original work of art and no authorized copies will ever be made. The painting is signed on the front and comes with a signed certificate of authenticity.
One unique characteristic of this painting is that it is all done on 4 mil thick, archival grade drafting mylar. In my Architectural practice, I use drafting mylar exclusively for building plans.This material is tough, waterproof, inert, flexible, dimensionally stable, and it does not have to be stretched, like canvas and watercolor paper. The mylar is translucent so that paint can be applied to both sides of the artwork.
I work exclusively with India ink and acrylic paint; the acrylic for the background work and the India ink for details. With this particular piece, I have put large areas of background color on the reverse side of the painting with more detailed work on the front.
This painting is mounted on tempered masonite board with a two or three inch border. It is “ready to hang”, with a hanging strip attached to the back and a wall hanging device that is very simple to use. It will be shipped in a cardboard box. You may take it out of the box and have it hanging on your wall within five minutes.
If a shipping rate to your country is not shown, send me a message and I will calculate the amount and let you know the amount.
