oil on canvas, 32" x 40", 1998
The Flamenco Dancer was a response to my first trip to Spain, where I attended a Flamenco festival in Valencia. Although the movement of the dancer was inspired by dancers at the festival, the face in this image was inspired by a passer-by in La Plaza de la Virgen. I was sitting at a café and I asked this stranger to wait a moment while I sketched him.
This painting depicts a man who tries to win the love of a lady by demonstrating his bravery in the bullfight!
