GC Myers  Heat of the Dance 2015-13° F overnight here.  So this morning I decide I need to show something to counter that frigid temperature.  Something with a little warmth.

That being said, here’s a new piece, a 12″ by 36″ canvas that shows a lot of heat here in the studio.  It has great saturation in the warm reds and yellows and even the purple at the bottom has a warmer quality. This is one of those pieces where the image flattens a bit when being photographed and doesn’t show the complete depth in the colors so I hope this quality comes off well on your screens.

To look at this painting then shift my gaze to the iced world outside my windows is a study in contrasts.  While I like the snow and cold as a rule, the temperatures today make this piece even more attractive to me this morning.

I am still up in the air as to what to call this painting. It is tentatively titled Heat of the Dance but that is just off the cuff and I am not sure that I am completely sold on it.  The curves and rhythms of the two tree entwined tree trunks suggest an embracing dance and the heat is definitely there but there seems to be something beyond this obvious title.  Maybe about a search for something with the path that leads towards a beckoning sun?  Perhaps with the two trees are seeking some sort of emotional warmth as well?

Maybe it should be simply Seeking Warmth.

I’ll have to just keep looking at it and try to figure this out.  On a morning like this, that is not a chore at all.

Oh, and if you have any suggestions for a title, feel free to let me know.
