    This piece certainly has an old world feel to it. You are a master of many styles Cary, wonderful work ….AGAIN!

  • Thanks mate…yes this one was fun to paint…when I was a kid there were still dances held….I can remember running and sliding along on saw dusted floors…the Oldies would let us go for a bit but all would eventually yell “you boys get the bloody hell off the dance floor before you get hurt!” ha that’s a laugh! we ‘boys’ played footy and swam in the slow green flowing river all day…a mere slide here or there on a dance floor would never hurt us! although now…I do my ‘football knee’ in quick time whenever my woman drags me up onto the dance floor! ;-)

    Marvelous melodic work you can almost hear the music in this one. Has the same feeling as the blue painting with the lady with the laundry.

  • Thanks again Seth….yes this one was also painted quickly out of the head with no reference but my memories!
