New work: Dance for Africa!

14/02/2016 18:29

I was asked to create a piece for my dance company's forthcoming gala show. The show contains a range of different dance performances and all proceeds raised will go to a wonderful charity called Whisper Orphans. Whisper works in Uganda helping improverished and orphaned children by providing healthcare and educational opportunities. The theme for this painting was 'Unity in Diversity' and 'Dance for Africa', and to me that meant bright, vibrant colours, smiles of hope, energy and passion. I hope this piece transmits all these things.  Let me know what you think!
