The above image is from a series of paintings done while I was a student for 6 weeks at the Skowhegan School in Maine during the summer of 1974.

Faceless people,  free form,   endless color.     I loved doing them!

Recently,  a client from Cambridge,  MA visited my studio and loved this idea too.     He also noted a watercolor I had hanging on my wall of musicians and dancers by Zygmund Jankowski.    He was drawn to the free-form playfulness of both approaches.

When I incorporated these ideas together,  including other romantic elements he wanted to include,  this is what evolved on the canvas,  41 years later 🙂
