This is the second of two Showgirl paintings from my trip to Reno to visit my friends Fred and Ed in 1982. I was still a young painter and just really starting to fly. I hung out in a casino sketching the gamblers and other people, and saw this, my first "Vegas Show." I sketched the girls during the show, and did the paintings from them after. The first painting had one girl in the foreground anchoring the review with the other girls in the background. This one focuses on a single girl with one on the right simply as an accessory to add a touch of red and close off the right side of the painting. I love the dancer in this as she's in total motion and color with her cape. The purple and red strokes just grab me and the way she lets it fly, along with the bold green strokes in the background, and the reds and oranges in the floor capture some of the best motion I've done.
