Just Dance by Samuel-Hardidge Just Dance by Samuel-Hardidge
~Just Dance~
Dance. Frail. Frolic.
Move like natural tempered waves.
Wind caressed butterflies.
Water splashed against cliff edge.

Without care. Conscience.
Image perceived.
Undignified. Like the least of these.

Naked for all to see.
In glory. To be known.
Self. With the other.
Who dances with you.
In your splendour.

----------------------------------------------

2 Samuel 6:22
I will become even more undignified than this, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes. But by these slave girls you spoke of, I will be held in honor."

this is really cool! I love the way you related worship to the leaping frog. It has such a natural, yet majestic feel to it---much like true worship! Wonderfully illustrated. I love the poems you include with your work. You should publish a book of your paintings and their corresponding poems!

Now THIS is wonderful!!

The colors--with the intense hues of purple-reds and blue-greens, deep shadows and warm highlights.

And the movement in this piece! Everything is in motion somehow, and it's wonderful! Active and expressive. Emotional and joyous. Conveying everything and more--an aching joy, a relentless pleasure. Wow.

The frog and the grass remind me of your abstract work a lot, and your work with the Tuesday pieces, while the lone-ness of the figure harkens back to your Alone Series works. I love his hands and arms, and his upraised thigh. (you know my thing for great hands and thighs, haha).

Wonderful work! I truely love it. Great stuff. :hug:
