Lorena Masferrer: David's Dance
Mixed media on canvas
24” x 48”
I had a very hard time leaving the Galleria dell’ Accademia. All I wanted to do was to stay behind and see the statues at night, with no one else around. Mostly, I wanted to stay behind and see David in all his splendor all to myself. If I could make this happen-after a few hours of sketching him & photographing him, I would play some great music and just dance my heart out, right beside him.
