In Rhythm

I am now in the midst of preparations for my annual show at the West End Gallery in Corning, NY.  It opens July 20 running through August 31 and is titled In Rhythm, the same title as the painting shown here, a 24″ by 36″ piece on canvas.  I often talk of rhythm here on this blog, most often about the rhythm of the composition’s elements, how they play off the energy of each other to create harmony.  I feel that this painting captures that aspect  of rhythm well and would be a great piece to set the direction for this show.
