Better Late Than Never,
Online Exhibition 2005 – EBSQ Art
Acrylic on Canvas
48 in x 30 in
This vibrant, music filled painting ended up being a real eye-catcher. It was inspired by an EBSQ show prospectus entitled ‘Orchestration.’ I didn’t get it finished in time to submit it for that particular online show but I did place it in the aptly named “Better Late Than Never” competition, also by EBSQ. I was thrilled when it won an award!
I started in on this piece with the idea of just a diva perched on a piano belting out soulful tunes. However, as I continued adding lines, the additional band members started to reveal themselves. I wanted to create a whimsical feeling with the piece and I think that the vibrant rainbow of colours, along with the geometric ‘bubbles’ and overall musical theme, truly do create that lighthearted feeling. It also has a very energetic and kinetic feeling to it.
