Painting Description

This painting began with colour in mind. The red background was the beginning and from there the blues were the next step. As with most of my paintings, it was painted flat on the floor, not upright on an easel. I like to work that way as I use very liquid paint (or glue) in most of the stages of the work and I also like to tip the painting to move the paint around. This method gives me the freedom to paint by moving the whole of my arm and body. I wanted the colours in this piece to to show eloquence of movement, the dance of ‘life’. I wanted it to show a joyful expression of the thrill of being alive!
