When I watch and listen certain singers like Janis Joplin, Ry Cooder, and Andrea Bocelli, I see and hear strong emotions they are expressing while singing. I want to be able to do the same with my art!
Talent without passion is just bland! It’s hard to connect to!
One way I show passion in my art work is to create something that I love doing. One example is dancing! I have always loved dancing, but never had the chance or time for it until a few years ago. I have been going to Zumba classes, 4 times a week (for 3 years), and Belly dancing once a week (for 2 years)' and I enjoy them both.
I draw and paint Belly dancers because I’m one too (only I don’t dance for the public)! When I create a dance to a song, it becomes mine. When I draw or paint a belly dancer I know exactly what she is feeling and doing.
This theme connects with my artwork of “Women Enjoying Life”!
Yes, this is me having fun dancing! Life is too short not to have fun!
Thank you for reading my blog!
