Art for Before and After the Ball March 2018

This past February wrote an entry for Henri Gervex's 'Return from the Ball'. In that post I mentioned that I had compiled a collection of what I refer to as "After the Party" paintings which depict similar subject matter. I've decided to dedicate March 2018 to sharing those pieces along with some "Before" paintings for variation.

Before. After. Before. After.

Yes, it'll seem repedative, but that's the point. As someone who has frequented the nightlife for over ten years and counting, I acknowledge that I'm a creature of habit, and I have fairly steady routines which I follow for both before and after my evenings out. I had my routines in Chicago--routines which over the years slowly adapted to my lifestyle changes--and now I have my routines here in PA. I find some of these routines unintentionally operate as their own little rituals, offering a certain degree of comfort.

Anyway, to mark my announcement of my "Before and After the Ball" series for March 2018, I'll share a video featuring the song "After the Party" from the 1965 film "How to Stuff a Wild Bikini." Enjoy!
