ARABESQUE


 
ARABESQUE JUNE THROUGH AUGUST 2018 ALBIN POSASEK MUSEUM. WINTER PARK, FL.
The pinks, greens and yellows in my painting were inspired by stay in Valencia where I was surprised to discover Moorish influences everywhere.  In Valencia I attended an event called the annual Battle Of The Marigolds. Thousands of Marigolds carpet an area as large as a football field and flower-laden floats compete for best in show. At the grand finale, Marigolds rain down on the heads of spectators-nearly like being immersed in orange and yellow pigment.
 
I made sketches on site and took photos, all source material for this and other paintings.
