Acrylic Figure ~ Waiting to Dance ~ Burridge Workshop ~ LLS

"Waiting to Dance"
Acrylic Figure 12" x 9"
Gallery wrapped canvas

This painting was done in the Robert Burridge workshop last week. See the previous blog post for a slide show of pieces from that 5 day event.
I delivered the small acrylic painting on Saturday to the Fort Worth Community Art Center for a donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Art Auction and Cocktail Party. This is the LLS's third art auction and charity event that benefits "Light the Night Walk". It involves artists, cancer survivors, and community members and last year the event raised more than $30,000. More information about A Cure Through Art click HERE.
The sponsors hope to double the amount raised last year.
The Title:
It is a struggle for me to give a painting a meaningful title. On the drive over to Fort Worth I heard one of my favorite songs, "I Hope You Dance", by Lee Ann Womack and memories returned surrounding the time when I first heard the song. I named this painting "Waiting to Dance".

You were busy at the workshop and I love this one the most. You say little painting - what size? So good of you to donate it to such a good cause.

Hi Joan, the size is listed under the title as 12" x 9". You just overlooked it. I'm glad you like it. The workshop has made me want to paint, paint.
