The dance

Pastel from a couple of nights ago.

One (Random) out, two (Lynx and Miss Lemon) in. Look how big Lynx has gotten! He's on his way to being the gigantic cat I predicted when I first saw those huge paws on that little kitten. Consider: look at his size; he's only 6 months old!

Jala, beautifully touching and personal subject... i love the pose of both the man and woman: they are both in harmony.... yet the colours are shouting out to the world... interesting that should be so. r.

I love coming over here and seeing that you're always switching things up, pushing, extending. It always inspires me.

But the snow?! oh man, that's coming my way isn't it!

Jala, Looks like the cats are the subject matter for "The Dance."

In the many months of visiting your blog, I think this is the very first time I've seen the human figure.
Why'd you keep us waiting so long!

What really strikes me aside from the subject is the halo of blues around the arms and hands.
Love the color triad also.

I can't believe that's little Lynx who is as big as Miss Lemon and still as beckoning with that extended paw.
Where's the little white waif?

Just beautiful. I love the colors, the graphic quality, intimacy. And I always look forward to seeing the kitties!

The salad dressing isn't really a good story, more like mildly interesting. The client wanted it done for Ken or whatever his name might be, the man who started it all. Italian was the first flavor they marketed from the restaurant.

Snow??? Wow! Our leaves are still green!

This is really nice... those dancers are lit from within! Seriously, those colors are just alive.
I, too want to know where the little white kitty is - Rumi? Probably not big enough to see out the door, or just in his other world, I suppose.

Beauty in simplifying. Nice. That red in the woman's dress vibrates!

a wonderful pastel. Dramatic color decisions make this sing. If you'd enjoy it, I'd love to see more figurative work by you.

Beautiful color and wonderful mood, it feels both intimate and intense at the same time. Great work, Jala!
