Gemma recently did a post based on five beautiful words. She invited commenters that were interested to try it, and the five words she gave me were,
Starlight, Tango, Magic, Luminous and Pearl.
I immediately thought of Jack Vettriano's art. In particular the painting above titled, Dance Me to the end of Love.This self taught artist has been one of my favourites for a while now. Prints of one of his well known works, The Singing Butler are well known. The original sold at auction for almost £750,000, a record price for a living Scottish artist.
The dancers above, may or may not be doing the Tango, but I think the five words Gemma gave me could be used in a description of this picture. Among other things, his work speaks to me of glamorous women & amorous men, sensually depicted in another time. Within my lifetime, but just beyond my memory.
