This story begins 4 and 1/2 years ago. My family was having a dinner party. I was a second semester Junior at MICA. Mr. Javad approached me and said he was interested in a large painting of a Flamenco Dancer. He wanted it to be "Playing with Paint!" and "Playing with Color!"
This was my first painting attempt. 4 ft. x 7ft. Unfortunately, the space above the fireplace is taller than wide, so my wide format painting simply wouldn't look right.
