Swing Kids
24x36 Acrylic on Canvas 3,000 "It don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that swing" - Duke Ellington "Swing Kids" was one of my favorite movies to watch as a kid. I love the music, the dancing and the all-around culture of swing. The unique lighting is at the top of my list of reasons I love this painting. It's exciting and gives them more of a dancehall feel. I also love the dancefloor. I think it adds to the movement of this piece. If I was stuck on an island with only one dance, it would be swing!
