At the end of 2020, with a Covid vaccine on the near horizon, I started hoping for a “Roaring 20s” style year ahead. I expected bathtub gin, big parties and dancing in the streets. While it didn’t turn out that way, I created my own exuberant year with a series of paintings of dancers inspired by vintage photos.

These paintings express the kind of fun that still seemed just out of reach. And they continue my love affair with expressive figures in motion.
