Illustration Friday: Tango


The IF topic today is "Tango." I am posting this small tapestry (about 8x10"), which is called "Tango Garden." I created it the summer after we moved into this house. I was, at that time, obsessed with two things; my new garden and Yo Yo Ma's CD, "Soul of the Tango." Those obsessions led to this abstract tapestry. I still hear his tango music when I look at it. By the way, I think it is some of the 'sexiest' music I have ever heard!

I am also going to repost this painting, "Mon Vieux Lucien", as I made some alterations to it to complete it.
