Putting on pointe shoes
Beautiful painting showing a girl in a ballet class putting on her pointe shoes. The girls didn't stand still for me, I was the proverbial fly on the wall with my easel and paints in a corner of the studio.
Who doesn't love watching little girl's dance? Dreams of The Nutcracker waft in the air...
I spent 6 years painting in a ballet school for girls. 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?
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.
