Ear / Dance

22" x 28" silver paint on black paperboard
My "little" brother David (who is a bunch taller than I am) was about
rent his first apartment on The Plaza
in Kansas City (MO). Big excitement all 'round! I asked him
what he would like for a housewarming gift.
He said: "Paint something for me, Acca." [Acca is the word for older sister
in our language, Tamil.]
I made this picture for him in my hope that his ear will only ever hear
sounds that make his heart dance for joy!
