I started First Dance by surprise. I was at a beautiful wedding. My husband, Norm and I teach at a lovely college north of Boston, Gordon College. Norm, as a full time theatre professor becomes very close to many of his students and therefore, we often get invited to weddings, (which I love to do).
I took some pictures with my iphone while at the reception. Back in my studio, on one of my focused painting days after working hours on my "gallery" paintings, I was exhausted and restless but did not want to stop for the day.
I pulled up some pictures from my computer and landed on one of the wedding paintings. I used the photo as a reference for this little impressionist painting sketch and I was on my way.
