Singing In The Rain

Andrea Gadd


This artwork was inspired by my love of dance and the use of colour in art. This painting is called “Singing in the Rain” after the famous tap song & dance routine and could be described by the famous quote from William Shakespeare’s poem, “All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances”. The tap shoes abandoned! Is this someone’s final exit or are they merely waiting in the wings to try again? Does the umbrella on the door step mean they have just stepped inside until the rain stops? Clean and fresh, the rain washed street reflects the warm lights from the windows and street lamp, representing a new outlook on life and a happier future. Everyone experiences rainy times in their lives but it is not for ever. Sing in the rain and the world will be a brighter place for you and every one else!
