This months Etsian Artists Art Party prompt was TIMELESSNESS.  To be honest I had too many ideas running through my head for this one.  Too many, because I am so indecisive and that made it way too hard to narrow it down to just one. lol  As you can see in the above pics, the idea I finally decided upon is inspired by one of my all time fav bands from the 80's Berlin and one song in particular called Dancing In Berlin!  The reason I chose this song for inspiration for this prompt is for many reasons but one in particular because even though this song came out in 1987 it is still in my top playlists here in 2012 and will continue to be forever!  In my opinion it is certainly a timeless hit and Berlin is a timeless band!  For this painting I used a great youtube video for a very rare dance remix of Dancing in Berlin, the video is a slideshow of some fabulous pics and I am sure if you have a peek you will see how they inspired this painting.  Check out the video below...
