This picture, or some version of it, has been hanging round on my computer for a good long while now. For some reason I can’t really explain I had set myself the mission of trying to convert my sometime earworm ‘Let’s face the music and dance’ into a picture that would reflect the spirit of the song.

After many false starts and incomplete attempts I finally had something I was happy with and so put paint to paper. I think my favourite touch is the bass clef in the ladies eyes which speaks of late nights clubbing and busy dancefloors. So, as Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers sang in Irving Berlin’s 1936 film ‘Follow the Fleet’:

“There may be trouble ahead
but while there’s music and moonlight
and love and romance
let’s face the music and dance”

She’s an eminently frameable A3 in size and has been completed using the magic of screen printing, paint pens, spraypaint and stencils. Signed on reverse.
