Fred And Ginger-Beijing Ballroom Dancers

Close up

Acrylic on Canson coldpress watercolor pad. Approx. 10x12 in

Here's Astaire and Rogers doing their thing in Beijing.

The acrylic is applied thinly in layers, like watercolor.

This is going to Vern Schwarz, a very accomplished artist with whom I have had many email conversations. He is an all around great fellow and I'm proud to call him a friend.
Yes, sadly, this is the last one and finishes TFM project. All in all it has been a wonderful experience conspiring and transpiring with a great bunch of fellow artists! I love ya all! :heart:

Get ready, Vern...This is heading home to you!


  1. How beautiful and refreshing this piece is. I love how it wants to transport, involve and take you into the dance with them. Even though they are serious it is such an uplifting piece full of hope and joy. I love it.

  2. Beautifully done, Adabanji. Lots of movement and life.
    I agree with your assessment of Vern, and everyone in the project. It's been fun! (yours really will be home soon..promise!)

  3. Beautifully done Dean. I was immediately drawn to the perfect expressions on their faces and the feeling of movement. Thank you very much for the great painting and the kind comments. I've really enjoyed the back and forth as well.

    Can hardly wait to see my book now, and all the great pieces that everyone has contributed. Thanks again to everyone involved.

  4. Simply outstanding, Adebanji, once again we get the pleasure of "reading" a beautiful story through your talent and eyes! This has been a special journey with everyone involved; thank you again so very much!
