My Vision of Peace
"Dancing With The Lights" describes the peace, the utter joy and serenity I have come to know in dancing tango. Tango connects all walks of life, as individuals embrace each other, regardless of age, gender, profession or ethnicity.

In creating an image of this art form, I found myself transported back to those precious moments in dancing, fully immersed in the haunting music, the warm embrace and the beautiful, synchronized and improvised movements. In this dance, we are painting a picture of peace, one song at a time.

“While half the world is sleeping, and the other half awake, we are dancing tango, somewhere in between.” Natalie Gearhart


Medium
Oil and Mixed Media on Canvas. Layers and layers of paper, acrylic and canvas have been united on one surface to create the countless layers of emotion felt in dancing tango. Surfaces were sanded away and re-built to convey the contrast of vulnerability and confidence found in making peace with one's self and the the outside world.

Now that's lovely. Nothing says "peace" like tango.
