Dancing by the sea

This woman and bird are an extract, placed on black for effect.
They are taken from 'Dancing by the sea', an enormous seven foot wide oil painting reproduced below. It was a bit of showmanship on my part at the Rochester Gallery, where you climb to first and second floor rooms via elegant but very narrow stairs. I wanted visitors to do a double take as they entered the first floor gallery to be confronted by the wall of painting. It did involve re-stretching the canvas in the room and devising a special frame that could carried up the stairs in pieces and them assembled around the now waiting picture!
It worked.
It sold
Then I reassembled it all over again upstairs in the clients house!
