Yesterday I started this new little painting. It’s 11X14 oil on canvas. There are 5 dancers altogether in the painting. One girl is in there twice from 2 different perspectives. Last year I took some pictures of a group of the oldest pre professional academy girls at Ballet Idaho who were rehearsing for an end of the year performance. I have been drawing ballet dancers all my life. I can remember painting girls in toe shoes while I was at church to pass the time. I also drew rainbows and unicorns. I was not a dancer. I was a tortured gymnast.
I also set up an Etsy shop yesterday, soon I’ll have some paintings in there to sell. My store name is JillMillwardARTWORK. I’m meeting with a web designer later this week, to set this site up as more of a website than a blog, although I will keep blogging. I’ll have a link from here to Etsy. This painting is one I will sell through Etsy.
