I was a little intimidated by the project, so I worked on it off and on for 2 months, completing a bunch of small paintings as I figured the big one out. This year I pledged to go bigger, and this was a great push in that direction!
Side note: I have been a Ballroom (Latin) dancer for 20+ years. Denis has been my coach and Pro/Am partner for 7 or 8 years. I am good friends with him and his beautiful wife Jolie, and am very honored that they trusted me to paint them dancing! They retired from competitive dancing before I met them; I would have loved to see them dance together!
