I was browsing old slides recently and came across a whole case dedicated to my early dancing days.
Think chubby-cheeked three-year-old blue fairy ballerina, or a tap-dancing five-year-old dressed as a white horse (I believe it was part of Cinderella's carriage).
So I've sent a bunch of slides off to ScanCafe to have them turned into digital files, and when I get them back I'll be sure to share some of the cuter ones with you *wink*
But in the meantime, the nostalgia had me painting ballerinas. Or their legs, anyway. I love the way light and shadows play in the folds of a tutu, and the grace and form of a dancer's legs.
There will be more, but this is a little idea of where I'm going. Enjoy!
