Adagio for a Rhododendron…

Adagio for a Rhododendron…Oil on Canvas – 24″ x 24″

“Adagio for a Rhododendron,” which was commissioned by Fran Breithaupt was inspired by the music of Strauss and Mahler.

“As I listened to these great composers, my painting seemed to take on a life of its own and I began to envision a corps de ballet – a tableau of beautiful ballerinas en pointe, moving gracefully in a circle.
This work was one of the my most joyful paintings experiences ever, and I could tell my joy was shared when I saw the look on Fran’s face as she viewed her painting for the first time.” ~John Molnar
