The Tango Por Una Cabeza, 83 inches in length by 17 inches in height.

The Tango

I wrote these comments for this video:
“This artwork is a portrait of the Tango from the movie Scent of a Woman. What makes this work different from the previous other large works of 2018, Like Vogue, and the Mozart Serenade, is that I broke the music a part based on the two rests from the music. What I am trying to do is to capture that same feeling that I get when I view an actual Van Gogh painting. Its is his colors that pulls me closer to Vincent, but it is the seeing of his brush strokes and the interaction they have on all those bright colors that creates the connection. Although I am trying to use bright colors differently from Vincent, I do want to pull the viewer closer. I hopefully do that with their interaction with the music. That is why breaking the music apart I think creates curiosity with the viewer. I talk of immersive qualities of this artwork in the video. That may be over confidence on me, but no matter, it is a start, for better to come.”

I do not need to say anymore about this artwork. After two months of living with it, I wish only to move on.  That is what has happened. I am now working on 2018’s Christmas painting.  An image of this artwork will be a part of the Christmas Cards that I will be sending out to those who have supported me this year and in the past. Never forget.  Thank You
