Resting - a ballerina's respite

Oil on Raymar Panel


I was fortunate to have a lovely ballerina pose for me a while back.  Alice is gorgeous and showed up with pointe shoes, tutus and a leotard.  It was such fun to see her in action...such a graceful young dancer.  Capturing that grace is the hard part!  Alice was gracious to continue to pose and then sat on the floor to rest...I loved this shot.  I always like paintings that tell a story...even a story of an exhausted ballerina. Of course, Alice wasn't really is just a good story.
