Dancer: The Story of This Painting

Color, light, movement, joy — Dancer incorporates a lot of beauty into a small space. Original oil painting, 12 x 12, by Steve Henderson; licensed open edition print available at iCanvasART.

The story of the painting, Dancer, by Steve Henderson of Steve Henderson Fine Art:

A young woman, in a blur of movement and grace, blends imperceptibly into her background, creating a fusion of representational figure work with an abstract background.

Dancer celebrates life, color, and joy in a 12 x 12 original oil painting that does not limit itself to its gold frame.

“This is an especially fun work,” Steve says. “The brushstrokes are bold and sweeping, and the fabric in the back of the dancer’s dress is indistinguishable from the abstract nature of her surroundings.

“She is either rising from the background or merging into it, and either way you look at it there is a sense of dynamism, mobility, and action.

“Dancer is the perfect name for a work that pulsates energy.”

Dancer is available as an original oil painting, 12 x 12, slightly larger with its gold frame. It is also newly available as a licensed art print at iCanvasART, in various sizes ranging from 12 x 12 to 37 x 37.
