Lovely painting, Andrea, I can feel the movement of the dancers locked in their embrace!

Martine said...

Well yes, i can see the power in your tango.
Love your new header too.

I'm convinced -- if you had nothing else to do and you had a paintbrush in your hand 24 hours a day -- you WOULD create amazing art 24 hours a day!

Heidi Alfonzo said...

very interesting painting! I do love the warm colors and like Dianne I can see the dancers as well! I also adore the new look and feel of your blog! :D

Genie said...

Beautiful art Andrea
Happy Xmas

Kim said...

Andrea, this painting so so very beautiful. I really love your feel for movement. I am thinking this is your input into your art...MOVEMENT! If you think about it the textiles show a lot of movement, Metroheads clearly show movement, the angel painting you have in your exhibit shows a lot of movement and now this painting! I think "Tango" is the most incredible show of movement, so far. I also adore the colors you have chosen for this movement...they are incredibly warm and appealing!

This is truly breathtaking!

Love,

Kim PS Super Header, Andrea!

Dianne, thanks for your comment, and I saw this too only once the painting was finished, as often it happens:)

Cestandrea said...

Martine, thank you, I thought you would like that, and think of putting pictures of Paris in the header would be nice for my friends:)

Cestandrea said...

Cathie, :) thank you for this wonderful compliment, oh I wish I could do that (or would I go crazy?:)

Cestandrea said...

Heidi, thanks so much for visiting and I'll try to give you more pictures of Paris soon...

Cestandrea said...

Genie:) Happy Xmas to you too! I would love some snow here but this does not happen:)

Cestandrea said...

Kim, I love your comment cause I think you got a really nice thought there, and a true one too, cause I myself love movement in paintings, thinking of your light-lines on indigo ground too, which are so very much "movement"!
Thank you for this thought, it made my day!

Oh yes,,,,, dancers, music,,,
joy.
A 'celebration' feeling.

Lynn said...

Wonderful colors and movement, it flows so nicely. Pleasing to my eye.

and I love the new banner. So bold and out there! YES!!!!

Peter J. Crowley said...

Wow! Love the Tango and the clock. Wow.
enjoy pjc

sukipoet said...

New banner is marvelous. Makes me feel I am standing there under the clock. The painting too is so beautiful and full of life. I like what Kim says, the observation of movement in all your work. Also the usage of color at which you are so fabulous. this painting makes me want to get up and move. It makes me feel warm and alive. Cheers, Suki

Cris, Artist in Oregon said...

I too can feel and see the movement in your painting. Wonderfully done.
Also LOVE you clock. wow stands out right now when you sign onto your blog. :))

Cestandrea said...

Babs, thanks so much for your comment, you know, when I painted this, we had just celebrated my Dad's 80th birthday with 60 friends and family, so, you are quite right:) (Though, hélas, we did not dance Tange:)

Cestandrea said...

Lynn, thanks for your sweet comment, and the clock looks better on my blog than in reality, LOL...

Cestandrea said...

Peter, thanks for visiting and I'd love to learn to dance Tango...

Cestandrea said...

Suki, I'm glad you like my new banner, I made this picture last Saturday in the Museum, I'll talk about this visit on my blog later (oh time oh time), there is another Picasso exhibition there, (one of three, I visited two by now) and I'll take you into it with my next exhibition notebook pages....
It makes me happy to make you feel warm:)

katie jane said...

It does remind me of a tango. Very pretty painting. I like the colors very much.

Cestandrea said...

Katie Jane,thanks and have a lovely day and dance the Tango (I don't know how to dance it but I absolutely have to learn it:)
