About "Nude with Flute"
Degas' swift, visible, directional pastel lines attracted my attention so much that I had to use them reproductively as a background tapestry to the nude flautist's rhythmical music.
Translucent, pastel-soft tones were used to build up her form, in contrast to the thick, opaque and heavy background brushstrokes.
Movement was created in the undulating placement of all the figures spread across the format.
A bright, happy and bustling scene was created to reflect the joy I felt on hearing the whisper of the flute played live before me for the first time.

Shelley Reeves completed her Bachelor of Fine Art degree at Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa, in 1994, majoring in Painting, History of Art, and Psychology. Her 4th Year Final Exam Self-Portrait was purchased by the University at the end of that year.
She completed a Higher Diploma in Education-Secondary at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in Port Elizabeth in 1995. Teaching secondary school Visual Art for 13 years resulted in numerous teens being inspired to pursue careers in Fine Art, Architecture, Fashion/Jewellery/Graphic Design, Animation, Advertising and Teaching.
Her deep respect for Scripture and Spirituality forms the core of her artistic inspiration, together with social interactions with an array of people from various cultural backgrounds. Her psychological understanding of the heart of man continues to ignite in her a compassionate, humble and cognitive love for humanity.
Shelley chose to stay at home to take care of her two energetic toddlers when they arrived in Dec 2010 and Mar 2012.
She plans to move on to produce Fine Art that seemlessly and abstractly reflects her innate passion for Home Interiors, Construction and Design, combining these aesthetics with her maturing spirituality.
