daughter performed i this costume for her Spring Ballet Recital last
year. It was fascinating to see her showsuch control and grace, usually
dance class is in my mind as a coordination of pick up and drop off
times. I was so surprised to see her up on stage with the other students
showing such an improvement in her skill level, so self possessed.
Painting this piece was a novel challenge, with the subtlety of the transparent Tutu and the bold red checked pattern.
This piece is on exhibit in my solo show at the Upstairs Art Gallery in Umpqua Bank in Arcata until the end of the month.
