Who doesn't love watching dance? Dreams of The Nutcracker waft in the air...
I spent 6 years painting in a ballet school. This meant I set up an easel in the classroom and painted what I saw, as fast as I could capture it. I love the resulting work, catching the girl's in their class. They were also always interested to see who had I painted this time? Could I paint them next time?
Meieli is a ballet teacher who taught at the school. I love the way the sunlight illuminates the shiny floor and the contrast to the shadow on her face.
This is your chance to own one of these darling little pictures.
I will send it to you in its cardboard mount carefully wrapped in protective cellophane.
