TROUPES | WATERCOLOR & GRAPHITE ON PAPER | 21X22

“You can only know something when you know it, not a minute before”, said the character Gilbert Blythe in the Canadian film series Anne with an E. This quote struck me as true on a multitude of levels. It certainly hold true for my painting process.

With Troupes that moment came when the dancers physical presence transitioned from gliding, repetitive foot steps and breath to a floating slow motion silence.
