Shadow Dancers

A little more than five years ago, I sat down at my drafting table and painted the first “Shadow Dancers”. They came to be sort of as an accident. I was painting and the dancers just turned out to look like shadows, and I loved them that way. They also make me think of this scene in the 1960 version of Peter Pan played by Mary Martin (the shadow and how they just made Tinker Bell with a light reflection were the best!).

The Shadow Dancers became a theme for me. I started trying to find them everywhere, in everything. There’s a story to them, but I haven’t figured it out yet…
