Summer Dance

Summer Dance has depth, color vibrance, energy, and movement. It is the energy of what a summer day looks and feels like.

Mother of the Drip

Summer Dance is in the style of Jackson Pollock, or is it? What if I told you that Jackson Pollock is not the father of the drip technique? Come to find out the mother of the drip technique is Janet Sobel. In the 1940’s Jackson Pollock admitted to seeing Sobel’s art and that it made an impression on his work. History favored Pollock. We have long forgotten about the grandmother and her creative work, and I find that incredibly sad. So, in the Spirit of Janet Sobel, I created Summer Dance.

Summer Dance Abstract Painting

Working with the drip technique is not as easy as some people think. It takes a lot of planning, patience and going with the flow. Summer Dance took over 4 months to create. Each “pass” had to dry before new layers could be created. Acrylic and enamel are layered underneath oil paint to create depth, color vibrancy and movement. It captures the energy of a summer day with the sun, sky, water, trees, and flowers all moving together in concert.

Janet Sobel

I don’t know if Janet Sobel would like Summer Dance. Of course, I would like to think she would because it mirrors her artwork. I invite you to learn more about Janet Sobel and her artwork. I know that I enjoy her style and creativity.
