Music Movement Dance

Music Movement Dance

I really do have to get back to painting. I keep putting off and off the day when I will lift a brush or a knife. I painted so many bad ones lately I have lost the heart to do it. I keep telling myself that I need to concentrate on getting back to full fitness then we will see.

I suppose the bleak spell of no sales has also been playing on my subconscious mind. On my other blog today I was giving thought to yesterday and the pessimist I met. I really need to go back a read what I wrote today and take it to heart.

This painting was painted at the request of a family friend. She was a lover of music and signing and dancing.

I tried to convey all three in the abstract painting. It was done on two canvases making a large painting that certainly made a great statement in the room where she hung it.

She liked it, I like it.

Now why do I not just remember that today and after my run stop making excuses and get on with it.

I hope you have a wonderful day with a glass half full not half empty. (See my other blog)

On second thoughts before jerry says it, I hope you have a wonderful day and your glass runs over with joy.

  1. Procrastination is a funny thing .... :)

  2. Ha ha funny you should say that Alice I was kind of tinking about that.

  3. Good Morning my running friend! I love this painting! and several you have posted recently.
    This one especially is a "signature piece" that is, I can recognize that YOU painted it and it contains a statement. Your landscapes are well done and beautiful but they get lost in a sea of competition. THIS one (and a few others) is all Ralph! I can see the Tao IN the art!!!

  4. Beautiful work Ralph! You will paint when you are ready. The mind needs time to contemplate too you know. :-))

  5. Ce tableau est une note d'optimisme... J'ose espérer qu'il jouera dans votre coeur et votre esprit un doux air de musique et vous entraînera vers d'autres peintures remplies de couleurs... La patience paie toujours, il ne faut pas désespérer. Des doutes nous en avons tous... N'ayez pas de craintes à mettre tout votre ressenti sur une toile, c'est l'écriture de votre âme... peu importe si les acheteurs ne répondent pas présent. Ce qui compte c'est que vous restiez authentique. Bisous
