ARABESQUE REVISITED AKA DANCING TO THE MUSIC

ARABESQUE REVISITED AKA DANCING TO THE MUSIC
Now and then, when we least expect it, the planets align and we find all kinds of good things going on! That happened to me this spring. A cousin in Oregon sent a website for a very talented artist that inspired me and several of my friends. My cousin’s daughter had taken an online class presented by Flora Bowley, http://braveintuitiveyou.com/, and her beautiful abstracts just blew us away! After talking it over for a while, we decided a deck party was definitely beckoning us. We chose a lovely day in April, covered my deck with dropclothes, took off our shoes, put some Harry Belafonte music on the CD, and went to work.
DECK ONE LOW RES
We could not possibly have chosen a more beautiful day. We bought a large quantity of paint, established ground rules: “YOU MUST HAVE FUN,” and began pouring, rubbing, brushing and applying the paints as our spirits moved us.
DECK THREE LOW RES
Surprisingly enough, no two paintings resembled one another – each had a beauty of its own. One painter was inspired by my deck cushions, another portrayed underwater creatures, a blue bird named “Squawk” emerged, and at the end of the day, we had some very nice pieces. Sherry Humphreys’ “ARABESQUE” so intrigued the judge at a local show that she won Best of Show! Later, I’ll post more of the work we did that day. It just goes to show that amazing things can happen when you Just Show Up!!!
