Just wonderful Helen!
ha and that is often reality...i am such a voyeur...
Yes, the graceful hand motions do make it seem that they are in a hypnotic dance. Very nice take on the prompt...
Strange game, indeed, being played out in the mind of the artist?
It really is a fascinating picture - it almost made me think of some sort of ancient olympic games or something.
this is a perfect take on the image- such a game or dance!
Yes you did express the impresion it was all for show, but I guess that is what one expects at Martha's Vineyard!
As long as they keep the beat..lovely place to stage a dance!
I played a season of inner-tube water polo in college. This looks similar, but I think a sailboat would make it rather awkward. A strange game, indeed!
Beautiful. I love the roundness of their bodies.
It certainly makes you wonder what they are up to. Good poem!
good one Helen
Helen: Indeed "what strange game they play". Great observation of this painting made more art through your poetry.
Strange, indeed! Maybe I'll not guess!
Lovely - finely crafted.Anna :o]
Yes, it does look like a dance! Movement, rhythmic, melodic, undulating... dancing is a game!
i really like this
yes indeed a strange and wonderful dance--excellent-c
You really can't put a handle on this painting, can you? Nice Magpie.
With eyes averted... YES! That is what is so strange about his painting. I should have picked up on that. Fantastic observation.
