Troika---or having fun with paint


This little painting evolved in the Burridge workshops. I laid down a layer of juicy blue paint then pressed a paper towel into it and immediately lifted it up creating an interesting lacy pattern. The three figures seemed to appear like magic. I just colored in their outlines. I did a lot of folk dancing in college and the whirling energetic troika was one of my favorite dances. I like the look of the word "troika" so I put it in at the bottom.
