Vying for affection
I have had the photo that this painting was based on as my screen saver for a while. It just makes me smile. Took the photo last Fall in Waynesville, NC. ( I guess that is where Wayne lived?) Waynesville is a quaint town in western North Carolina. Good shopping, food and galleries. They have several festivals in the Fall. I think this was the Apple festival. These three were part of a square dance group. There were a few other women in the group but these two fellows only had eyes for this lady. She had a beautiful smile and great gams.
This is painted on a 12 x 24" gallery wrapped canvas. In the photograph there was a crowd of smiling people behind the dancers. Had to play with what to put in the background. I guess it is kind of an abstracted building. Felt like I needed to break up some of the space. I think it works.?
