contact artist for purchase
My 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.
