A Sudden Flash of Red


A few years ago, I lived in the Fremont district of Seattle.  Every year there is a large eclectic parade celebrating the summer solstice.

 As part of the parade, troupes of belly dancers of every size and age, dressed in costumes of brilliant color swirl by.  As I watched, a three year old child ran out into the midst of the twirling skirts, jingling coins and chains and flowing scarves.

She was no more than waist high and the skirts enveloped her in a whirl of color and movement.       I wondered what it would be   like to see the dancers from her perspective, so I focused the paintings as if I was             three feet tall. I used this point of view to focus on the visual ideas of color, texture, transparency and movement.

And so this series of paintings was started based on the vantage point of a three year old child caught up in the vivid whirl of the dance.
