Dance in the Rain

Dance in the Rain
Acrylic on gallery-wrapped stretched canvas
20" x  20" x  0.75"

I don't usually paint people, but I was inspired lately to give it a go and try something new :)

As I was painting the dress, I thought it kind of looked like feathers...made me think of a Phoenix, all fiery red, orange, pink and gold. Perhaps this woman is learning to dance in the rain, and begin her life anew...

Looks like she's starting with tossing aside that umbrella...who needs one anyway, right? ;)
